Hi just got me a 305 and as with most older engines its in need of cleaning "and before someone suggested having it cleaned" i don't have a cherry picker and its a major feat to move it around, anyway i have always used engine degunk to clean past engines is there something better out there or is that still pretty much the best stuff

Daniel,

If you are talking about Gunk engine cleaner, it certainly will do a good job of externally cleaning a greasy engine. My only objection to this particular brand (Gunk) is the smell and how it attaches itself to everything and everyone and persists for months! Worse than a skunk in my estimation.

I used a solution used for cleaning paint brushes. I would scrape, brush on and scrape again. It did such a good job that the casting started to rust.

Hi Daniel,

I used this stuff , it doesn't smell as bad as Gunk, it's totally water soluble and environmentally safe (keeps the tree huggers happy!) wink
Joking apart, it's good stuff and I've used it for most de-greasing on my truck,including the gas tank.
I hope this helps

Jock thumbs_up

Jock,

Not to rain on anyone's parade, least of all the tree huggers, but as soon as that environmental friendly cleaner cleans the junk off your motor, it's no longer environmentally friendly...it's full of grease, oil, gas and whatever roadkill it has successfully washed off your motor. So much for 'green'! smile

Yeah, well at least the "stuff" is eco friendly and everyone already knows all us old gearheads don't give a toot about trees or critters anyway. wink We only believe in burnin' out, burnin' down and drinkin' beer and chasin' girls. Probably all conservatives too....oh-oh!

I understand that Stuart, I don't just let all the cr*p flow down the nearest drain,in fact where I live we have a natural reed bed system for all 'grey water'.
We do not use any detergents/soaps in our house that will damage the environment.
It's a specific requirement of all the households where I live.
I was just saying the POR is much less aggressive than some of the stuff out there! thumbs_up
I did not mean to offend anyone.
Jock dang
P.S(I didn't mean to hijack your thread Daniel!)

i do have to disagree rodders are not eviromental freinds most rodders don't race their cars they cruise in them other than bikers i don't think anyone apperciates the outdoors more yeah our rods might be abit loud and may not always make the best odors or even get good mileage but in the grand sceam of the polution prob street rods arn't even a drop in the bucket smile
