Nice trick. I love learning this kind of thing!

Tried it last night - the eroded area didn't clean up so definately burned some
of the spigot away. No matter. I'll get all 4 cleaned up.

Just got a new case, pre-prepared with savers and oil drilling; full flow kit;
and a deep sump. Waiting for pro verdict on camshaft (lobes worn) and crank
(whether it needs regrinding).
