Default Cleaning & polishing engine parts

Hi Guys,

Wonder if you can help me.

I have always looked after my engines i tend to strip them down for inspection & clean all internals etc.
Then work on the Piston/Button Head etc.

I have always used the polish from JP Racing products.
It's come to the point where i have ran out & the Dist in the UK does not stock it anymore wont get any

What do you guys use if you do this method.

I know some of you are going to say dont do it etc but i have done this for many many years advised from some of the best European Onroad drivers over the few years its always worked treat for me.

My engines have always been going alot longer than some other peoples when they have just been left alone.

There is a product made by Eagle One called Never Dull, I have used this for years and works great!

Easy to get at most auto parts stores.

Any pastes or creams will leave a residue that will bleed out when the engine gets to operating Temp and will not be good for the engine so imo dont do it.

Never Dull is the only polish I know that won’t leave anything behind.

Awesome stuff, though I have never used it on engine parts before.

I got a big bottle of Jeweler's Rouge from a truck stop. I swear it's the exact same stuff as the JP polish.

Internals : Brasso metal polish, dremel machine, dremel's cotton buds polisher, clean clothes, electric motor sprays.

Never polish the vertical side ( piston lining ). That's carbon like lining is the natural seal for compression.

Electric motor sprays for cleaning the carburator's ( spray it from the fulel intake nipple and watch the sprays come out from the carb nozzle ), and for bearing cleaning

Always use plenty after run oil for storage and while re-building back together.

Externals : I have japanese brand ( G-SOX ) made for automotive engine cleaner, its like thick foam, and it works very well to clean the outside cooling fins. G- SOX also provide free brush as complimentary cleaning kit.
