Default engine cleaning

I detail cars on the side and Im actually looking to a business liscense hopefully if things pick up. I have always strayed away from doin engines cause one of my old employers ran into problems when he did it ecspecially on Fords. How should I go about this on my Bonny? As a degreaser I usually buy Purple Power. Any suggestions on that?

Gunk foamy engine bright. Spray it all over. Let it sit, brush the heavy spots.

Rinse all over.

Done.




(I never cover ANYTHING on either of my engines and I've never had a single problem)

Black magic has a new product that I used two weeks ago on my SSEi; it was very effective with out any prep work and no pressurized water- just followed the directions which are also on this url.

So, follow those, consult a physician before beginning and all that good stuff. But this is a good product.

I used the black magic stuff and was not a fan at all. I heard That CD2 was awesome but it is getting hard to find.
