Has anyone out there heard of simmering engines in anti-freeze in a slow cooker of some kind to clean the varnish off the outside of them? If so, how long do you let it go, how hot do you get it, and is the anti-freeze straight from the jug or some kind of solution?
And if this doesn't work, what is the best method?

Used the Antifreeze method once and it worked great. DO NOT boil, this is why the crockpot is needed. Use a crockpot on high with straight antifreeze. I left the carb on without any negitive results to the plastic or o-ring but a piece of tygon tubing turned hard (not part of engine). Use a brush as needed to remove heave cust after soaking for 10-24hrs. Rinse well, coat with oil. Walmart sells small crockpots for about $10. Also, I guess there is two types of antifreeze now. Use the old style containing ethylene glycol base. Because the antifreeze is toxic I do not use this crockpot for cooking anything but hobby items.
