Crockpot parts cleaning.

Working on a B&S lawn mower engine I remembered a cleaning method from my RC glow engine days. Fill a crockpot with 50/50 ethlene glycol and set crockpot to high until it starts to boil. Lower heat and let set for 6-8 hours. Pull part out with attached wire and rinse with cold water. Coked on carbon wipes right off. I should have taken a before photo. The rings were wore out with lots of blow-by. The crankcase vent is attached to the air intake so the intake valve was coked up too.

A bit of touch up with a scraper and toothbrush size wire brush and here's the results.

Stuff like that is why Mom hated me. 


"u uuuho" 

How about baking coated parts in the oven, or cleaning stuff in the dishwasher?
