I sanded the base lightly

I sanded the base lightly just to see a bit clearer what was going on,

Definitely some sort of blistering reaction. With some of the blisters like bubbles that you can press down, I didn't want these to potentially break and flake off into the oil in future, so I thought it safest to just sand the surface down to get rid of the blisters

Using my new 'surfacing plate

Using my new 'surfacing plate', I've also now sanded most of the gasket surfaces to remove old residue and remove any high spots

Other than looking like some

Other than looking like some sort of 'Robot pirate' the valve chest area is a little trickier to clean up with the rusted exhaust still in place, but I'll work around it
