A momentary digression...
Where did you get the paint for the block? Is it the orginal silvery-green colour?
My engine is in bits at the mo and I'm planning to paint the block and polish the cam cover before reassembling it all next week. I was going to paint it a silver colour I found (heat proof) that pretty much exactly matches the natural colour of the ally head. But would prefer to do it the original colour.
