Ralph, I agree about hte parts washer. This motor had 1/4" of muck covering most of it. No wonder this thing overheated. The tops and sides of the cylinder fins were nearly plugged. I bet no air went through these at all. The heads were much cleaner. Just a reminder to check your thermostat and breather cover gaskets.

I am just precleaning to find the necessary fasteners and to make sure I don't strip them trying to wrench through the muck.

I took out the cylinders last night. The are nearly clean. The muck just dropped off with a nylon scrub brush.

I hope to split the case this weekend. Time to find out how much damage occured on the bottom end.
