Have tried polishes,degreasers, jif and other differnt solvents . There must be something that gets it off -- easily!!
It's a really simple process .... you'll be shocked when you
see the results!
Just go buy a cheap $10.00 - $15.00 crock pot at Wallmart
or Target, also buy a gallon of cheap / any brand antifreeze.
I generally start the process in the evening on a Friday.
1. Put all of your pipes and headers in to the crock pot.
2. Poor Antifreeze over the pipes and headers to where
you have covered them by at least a 1/2 inch.
3. MOST IMPORTANT! Keep the setting on the lowest
heat possible. If you raise the temp to High or Med
it will only put Black Stains on the pipe and will not
accelerate the process.
4. It is best to let them cook on the lowest setting until
the next morning when you can grab the pieces and
wipe them off with a rag which 95% of the gunk will
wipe off. For Best Results, put them back in for 2 hours
and then use a tooth brush to remove the tiny pieces
inside of the heat sinks ..... should be clean aluminum
again. I then wipe them off with denatured and then
rub Mother's aluminum polish for the Shiny touch.
