I can't say that I have heard of engine parts "acid
dipped". The process that I have heard about is "hot
tanked". That is a heated petroleum based product (in
a tank) with the liquid pumped so it moves around.
I have heard of sheet metal such as doors,
wings/fenders being acid dipped. The process is a
dipping in an acid to remove paint and rust followed
immediately by a dipping in a rust preventer solution.
For example, I have had my Rover 2000 block hot tanked
and a couple of doors acid dipped and primed.
