    Smile Give a engine bath with purple power and water

    This probably bad idea anyway here it is. It's a risk gamble for me.

    Before


    Gave her bath and use purple power to clean. Interesting purple power made gasket peel easier on me to remove the gasket without use razor to scrap off and look like gasket could be dried off and reuse? I will find that out later and updated with yall if it's reusable. Probably bad idea to wash her with water hose lol that my risk gamble. Be sure to mix purple power with water I'd say about 1/4 if u don't she is strong enough to eat aluiumim up.



    After
    [/FONT]



    Blow engine dry each oil holes with air compressor hose then fill her up with diesel to remove any water or left over dirt and left it for 24 hours make sure u turn shaft few times. Next day fill up with oil same turn shaft few times then leave it for next 24 hours to lubricant seal properly then drain oil out before assemble.

    What do you do with the contaminated diesel fuel after it has been in the engine?

    That motor was pretty nasty inside. What makes you think that crank is any good? If it were me i would have torn down the whole thing and cleaned the parts individually. The only real way to check the integrity of a crank is to take it out of the cases and inspect it.

    She still turn smooth but you are right it's best idea to take everything apart. This is a bad idea lazy way like I were saying its a risky gamble for me lol.

    I have to say... that did an amazing job cleaning the engine. Water in the engine scares me... but looks like you took good steps to get it all out.

    I'd open up the mag cover to make sure the forward crank seal didn't leak and flood the mag area with water or diesel. Easy to do and only takes a little time to clean and reapply sealant.

    Cheers!

    I did that and unfortunately it's leaked and even rear seal leak as well.
