I have heard "kerosene" so many times as a flush. Kerosene is a dry oil almost no lube qualities at all. In my opinion the worst thing one could use as a flush. Imagine using flame proof gasoline (no such thing)- rub gas and Kerosene between your fingers -NOT slippery. Machinery needs lubrication so why use a non lube as a flush or cleaner? Deisel has more lubricant then Kerosene - but still not a good flush. Long run periods and good oil will clean an engine well.Short runs build wax & varnish deposits as they settle on the castings and cool then build up to form sludge. In long hot runs the hot oil will clean & dissolve the sludge. I had a chevy 350 I got from a car it smoked -burned blue (terrible) It was supposed to be rebuilt before it was used, to put in one of my 5 snow plows in MA. We had an angine let go in the middle of a storm. We put valve coner gaskets on the worn engine ( there was old oil dripping off the heads) when we took off the valve covers you could hardly see the valve springs and rocker arms. We needed it badly -threw it in any way to finish the season. The plows run at least 24-40 hours straight in a storm. At the end of the season I pulled the engine ofr an over haul. When we tor down the engine it was clean as a whistle inside - one would never know it was a sludged up gummed up mess. Heat and constant flushing with hot oild did the trick.
