and bead blast to original metal front timing cover upper piece, etc. My Sahara block came painted RED by assembler, so I matched it with powder coated valve cover, and freshened-up other pieces with bead blast. Warning: Timing cover is fragile- mine was minutely cracked by a drop or something during the cleaning process and we only discovered this after assembly. Had to epoxy to limit/stop the resultant leak. Mad as hell about that: new engine does not deserve leak from a crack and replacement is a PITA.///
