Default Re: 1937 85hp cylinder sleeve possibly leaking water into the pan?

A little off topic but I was a Ford dealer tech all my life. When they did the cash for clunkers program in the early 2000s the cars we got in under that program were deemed junk and not allowed to be registered again. To insure the engines were to never see street use again we were instructed to drain the oil and refill with 1qt sodium silicate and 3qts of water. Then start the engine and hold it wide open until it bogged down and stopped. Worked every time. The looser the engine the longer it took but never more than a minute. Believe Ronnie when he says it works.
