cleaner

I am rebuilding an 8HP B&S and have the valves gapped and the rings are all set. All I need to do now is clean everything up and reassemble. What suggestions for a good safe solvent for the final cleanup before assembly?

I use carb & choke spray cleaner followed with compressed air, This removes all old oil residue and any sand/dust that may be stuck to the inner block or parts.


Good Luck

mineral spirits also work well you need to use only clean fresh cleaner what ever you do on a new engine. if you have a parts washer make sure it runs through a filter before the nozzle, i have also used pure simple green as a cleaner degreaser and it is biodegradable.
