    I saw an 02 Silverado x-cab Z-71 on CL with a 6.0/NV4500 wrecked for $1500.....never wanted something so bad in my life!!! I wouldn't be able to make up my mind if I wanted it in one of my squares or in my 02 Sierra though. Good find!

    Sweet deal on the 6.0! Your truck will really move then! Tell me why once the water pump was off you knew it was a 6.0 not a 5.3? Is that where the casting is on the block that says what is it? I thought on my 4.8 it was off to one side more

    Correct, it's to the side under the accessories bracket, you can't see it with everything on, but you can with either one off. It's also on the rear of the block under the flexplate.

    I love it when shit works !!! Where do you buy straight lye?

    That was just soaking? No scrubbing, heating, electricity methods or anything? I need to do that to a few things if it works like you've showed. Just soak, rinse and could I could I blow dry with a blow gun?

    I bought drain crystals from Tractor Supply. Roebic brand, Sodium Hydroxide is the technical name for Lye and active chemical you're looking for.

    Just soaked them, no scrubbing. I left them 24 hours, which was too long, it left a film I had to rinse off because they were really nasty to start.

    I blew them off with my air compressor then chunked them into my powder coat oven at 250 for about thirty minutes, a blow dryer or heat gun would work also I'm sure.

    Did the lye give them the grey color that shows in the pics? Or were they like that before the soak? I'm so used to seeing ls heads in raw aluminum, the grey looks odd to me.

    I think it did, the valve covers looked the same.
