Valve and rocker arm shaft bolts and head bolts that spent over 50 years bolted up and covered with ‘gunk’ and removed a few years ago. Pulled out the 4 shaft bolts and soaked over night in a 25 /75 oil eater and water solution. No need to have them vatted. The results speak for themselves.

Right on time with the tip. The cleaning solvent in my parts washer is around 16 years old, more like thin grease than solvent. I have a complete set of rocker arms that need to be cleaned up, got them off a 216 oil burner and need to see if they are usable or not.

Thanks 50's 2 weeks late but! I got it ordered tonite. Late meaning replacing front steering sector and decided to do engine and bay under hood. This product would have been perfect for that instead of what I used which made a heckuva mess in my garage. But this will help clean it up !!!!

I Drink a glass, once a month, Cleans me right out!
What's the cost? 'Cause I use old Gasoline with the same results, and it doesn't cost me anything but a few Brain Cells! (Washed my entire engine, sanded, and painted all in the same day).

And a small spark would put an end to it all!

I use kerosene too, but I still have to spend time with a brush. Apparently, this stuff is simply dunk and rinse off the next day? I like the sound of that!
