Well here's the block again, looking much better now.



I think I'm going to start rinsing the block soon and call it clean. There's still some evidence of the tarnish hiding between the pins, but the toothbrush isn't fine enough to get in there.

You know, in all those cleaning guides you can Google up they never mention that using all that vinegar can give you the biggest craving for fish and chips.

Edit: Got everything hooked back up. A quick test and i looks like load temps have dropped by about 5C for me, before Arctic Silver cure time. That was successful.
