    • Cleaning Engine

      Hello,

      What is the best way to clean this muck off the engine? Years of neglect (not mine)
      One cylinder I removed and used a saw blade to scrape between each cooling fin then scrubbed with caustic (alkaline) oven cleaner. This took about 1 hour! The oil and dust has been baked hard by the heat.
      I do not want to remove all cylinders but they do need to be clean.



      Regards
      Cheers,

    • Hey Jason,

      look at this Thread:

      Mein Deutz F2L 514/53

      In posting 132 you will find a solution for cleaning mixtures:

      • First step: Bref(f) (brandname of LIDL supermarket) - a cleaning spray for oven! For first cleaning. Use carefully, because it's corrosive!!! Read instructions before use!!!

      • Second step: citric acid - concentrated 3-4 soup spoons in 1 litre of water for 20 minutes - to lay in (i think you also can use ist with a brush)



      Sorry for my bad english!

      Regards

    • Hi,

      Thanks for the ideas. I'll update you on progress.


      How do they blast the dry ice? This sounds like a good idea, non caustic, no chemicals.


      Hey, do not apologize for your English skills (this is a German forum). You should hear my German - I stopped learning when my daughter was 4 years old. I probably also know a bit of german swearing, being the target. As you may guess I have a German partner.

      I use Google to translate the posts as my German is not good enough to understand. This works but it is hard and very tiring reading.
      Cheers,

    • Update.

      After a lot of hard work with a scraper blade and oven cleaner the engine now looks like this. Even after 3 cycles of oven cleaner ("alkaline salts + Diethylene glycol alkyl ether"), scraping, pressure washing with water there is still a small amount of very hard material. I am happy with this result.

      Thanks for the suggestions.
