Yes I did say don't leave it on too long, I do know some one who spoilt his bike engine with this but it dose clean it if you get it right.

Default second live of a conrod

Hi, I found a way to re-use a old conrod, and I am sure there are more old parts in your garage for recycling

Cool Cleaning aluminium castings

Hi,
I have had good results with polyclens brush cleaner when using it to clean oil from aluminium castings on my old motorcycle engines, it works much better than gunk and it really brings up the casings like new. So no stripping and blasting required, give it a go see how you get on.

Cheers, Gerry.
