    Is this a late (new casting) Series IV block

    The owner said it 'had been rebuilt some time ago at great expense' I know that doesn't mean anything but at £750 I thought it worth the gamble as a good core unit. It has storage rust but the internals appear lubricated.

    Hi Pete - that's why I recomended white wall cleaner - it is formulated to clean painted rubber. Try a bit with a cotton bud tip;) also try meths or turps. Neither is a paint solvent at least not in the paint on the hose. Experiment.
