Rusted Cylinder Head Bolt

Recommended Posts

In the process of doing a top end rebuild I had to send the cylinder off to be re-nikasiled. I closed up the open hole with a rag whilst the cylinder was off but noticed that in just 3 weeks one of the bolts that the cylinder sits on has started to rust. I've taken a wire brush to it to clean it and lubed it up with WD40. I'm nervous now though. Take a look at the pic - what are the impacts of this once everything is back together again?

Clean it up with a wire brush, then run a die or chase down it and slap it back together.
