Default Removing Castor Oil

Hi,

I have an engine that needs to be cleaned up. Does anyone know how to remove caster oil build up? It really makes a mess.

Get a crockpot (Electric saucepan in the UK?) that will not be used for cooking ever again. Fill it with antifreeze, the ordinary stuff not the biodegradeable stuff. Take the engine apart, except for rubber or plastic parts, put every thing in the pot and stew it overnight on a medium setting. Next morning engine will look like new. Do it in the garden shed or garage. Antifreeze and fumes are poisonious.
