    For future reference heat with a rosebud torch then apply your penetrant of choice while it's still hot.
    What the hell...

    Toss it on the kerosene stove!

    I might have a problem getting my motor, minus 1 cylinder to sit on top of a stove.

    Gotta be resourceful, Craig!

    With a Perfection heater as shown, you could use sawhorses and angle iron.

    The IR thermometer is the only 'hi-tech' trick.

    PS: Perfections were credited with saving lives during the Spanish Flu pandemic, because folks didn't have to stand in line for coal.
