    Will do ;) Should I go ahead and pull the inspection cover to "check" anything in there or just put it back together?

    nothing really to see in there IMO

    put it back together and run the snot out of it

    DISCLAIMER: I wouldn't advise doing this, but.................I've seen it work

    couple tablespoons of dutch cleanser down the carb with engine running
    Bonami (sp) was just the brand of cleanser always used
    rings not seating after rebuild, Bonami down the carb to the rescue

    yea, but this stuff is healthier, has more fibre
    roughens up those cylinder walls in no time

    hmm, do they do that in the south.......smell the exhaust ???
    we don't out here (grin)

    ATF would make a smokescreen you could hide the Titanic behind
    at least you know the engine bores will be Mr Clean with the above method

    Bonami is like pouring Ajax in the motor. I've heard of it being done never peronally tried it or know anyone that has done it but it would be either really good or really, really bad for the motor. Don't think in between results would happen, definately wouldn't do it twice on the same motor.
