Spaceman,
I work on Aircraft and we are no longer allowed to use Simple Green due to it'* corrosive properties. If you do not COMPLETELY rinse it off it will eat through any aluminum parts you have, EVEN IF THEY'RE PAINTED!!! I had a helicopter that had 15' of aluminum floor panel get eaten up because of Simple Green. Any Citris type cleaner poses the same threat. So if you use any of htese types of cleaners you have to make sure you get all residue off.

Wow, I better go get to that right away. I really didnt do much to remove it from the engine. Most of the things that I cleaned were plastics(supercharger cover, air intake). Thanks for the warning!

No problem, To think we found out by accident and it cost $3,100 for the floor replacement.

try to stay away from all the fuse boxes at the top... and when you rinse use as little water as possible and hopefully it will start back up again.
