Just to throw a spanner in the works..........has anyone tried electrolysis to get the rust and gunge out of the inners of a seagull. I`ve been looking on Youtube and was thinking of having a go at other rusty objects.

Yeap, I have tried that. It's not too effective when we talk about our usual problems. It's an "eye to eye contact" process and it works when you have something like two sheets of metal. A rusty one and a sacrificial one. The areas interfering are equal so you will see good results soon. But in case you stick a rod in a steel tank? The areas are not equal in any case and you have to find a way not to sort-circuiting the two items (tank-rod or whatever you try on). The same problem you will find in an attempt to remove deposits from a water jacket.

Another one saved today. This block was cleaner in the blind chamber than the first one. I will fit the water transfer pipe to the new hole when assembling the motor and a small tube on the original hole.

I did that with a spare Silver Century block, then to a C100 block. The only advantage is that it gives extra access to the water gallery for cleaning.

Be sure before start drilling that there are no cracks around the region the arrow points at. 2-3 blocks that I came across were already full and cracked over there.
