A while back I posted lots of pics of my engine cleaned and all.
those pics are gone now but it looked great.
heres the description:
I started by Spraying the engine down with a strong mist type spray on my nozzle. Then I did a more direct hard spray on parts. After that I sprayed some Simple Green all over and let it sit for about 10 mins. After the 10 mins I Hosed that off, then I wiped down some spots with a rag and then I blew all of the water out with a leaf blower. The last thing I did was spray stoners trim shine all over the plastic parts and I took pics right after, thats why it looks SOOO shiny. I already tryed starting it up and it ran fine even though I didnt cover the alternator or the battery at all so no need to worry.
Sometime around thanksgiving I will be cleaning the engine once again taking before and after pics to try and help people who are scared of hurting something that it is fine to put some water on it.
