The block has been exposed to the elements for a while now. I periodically spray fogging oil and the vehicle is garaged.

How do I prepare the block surface for the head and head gasket on this vehicle?

The post is just about block mating surface not the head surface. Other thoughts are welcome, but I really just want to stay focused on the block mating surface.

Thanks.

I would clean it good with a scraper then get a long block sander like body shops use , fine sand paper in it and sand the deck of the block , make sure you wash it good with dish soap good after and blow out all the oil holes good
