Oven cleaner works wonders on all those carbon dirty parts.

Pressure washer and degreaser do to on the block. All the smaller stuff goes in the parts washer. One of the benefits of being able to do it at work.

oven cleaner huh, i have a atv head that looks like those commecials you see like if you dont ever change your oil this is what it will look like. we have a parts cleaner at work but no body uses it so it got stashed and people use it as a table so i would rather try the oven cleaner if it works.

Yep, it helps if the parts are warm. I'm thinking of scavenging an old dishwasher and filling it with Safety Clean and using it to wash parts. Instead of it draining out the hose, I'll drill a hole in the top for the hose so it recycles it every cycle.

The parts washer we have at work keeps the fluid heated all the time. The company is safety clean the owns it and maintains it for us.

Bought parts today. Spent 272 on the rebuild kit. Spent 69 on cam bearing tool and oil priming tool from summit racing. Spent 221 at rock auto on parts. Now just gotta wait for everything to come in.

Why did you waste money on the oil priming tool when I had one here at my house that I built using an old distributor?
