Removing rust from an engine block?

Hey all im rebuilding my 22re and am trying to remove all the rust from the block so i can paint it. I tried putting rust converter gel on there and it only helped a little. I cant seem to get this rust off. The PO used to drive it on the beach so thats why the block is so rusty. Thanks for the help!

take it to a shop and have them bead blast it, it should remove most of the rust if not all.

pffft.... I wish my engine could rust, it has so much oil on it theres no way.

I have no idea where they do bead blasting. Most machine shops in my area do sand blasting, thats a similar process.

wd-40 and a steel brush works good enough for me. but to get it all gone and perfectly ready for paint, any sort of media blasting would do.

go talk to a local body shop or a machine shop. im sure they can point you in the right direction.
