Wondering if anyone has some special tricks for cleaning out the inside of a 2 cylinder crankcase. I have pulled the oil pump assembly. The filter assemblly according to the manual is pressed into the case, so I guess I will leave it there. I plan to scrape all the goo out with a putty knife or similar, then wash with some solvent using spray bottle. Then follow up with diesel. Let everything fall out the drain hole in the crank case, then wipe it down? Any other tricks out there anyone has tried. The engine/governor/cam is all of the machine.

When I was a kid on the farm Dad used to wash off tractors readying for tear down, or wash up gunky parts, using kerosene under pressure - lots of pressure! He'd set an empty LP gas tank of about 20 gallon size, gas valve open or removed, under the spigot of the kerosene barrel, then let kerosene run into the LP gas tank until about half full. Then fill the LP gas tank on up with LP. Walla! Using the liquid valve on the LP gas tank, here was kerosene under about 150 PSI and the tank didn't didn't need pumped. As my memory of Dad always includes a cigarette in his mouth, I suppose he did this while smoking - no, it was the smoking that took his life, not a kerosene/LP gas blow up!! WARNING - do not try this at home as it could be hazardous to your health!!!

Kerosene in a garden pump up sprayer and some brushes does a good job of cleaning with little extra blowing around. Plus kerosene is not going to harm anything like water could. With all the work and money you will spend I would surly pull the filter head apart and check it out and at least put in new gaskets. Leave can in place and make sure it isn't crushed or top bent up. Top is an easy fix to straighten.

Try a small coolant pump for a lathe, mill, etc. Put it under the crankcase drain in a pail with kerosene. Rig a flex hose to run into the crankcase. Let it run 24-7, keep moving hte hose, eventually you'll get it all.

Fred,

I suggest you drop the oil pump out the bottom of the case. This will give you a lot more room to work, and you can take the opportunity to clean up the screen and check out the pump. Be aware that if you take the bottom cover off the pump, you must replace the gasket with one of the same thickness, it provides clearance for the gears.

Fred:

I just pour enough diesel in to cover the sludge, put in the plugs, and let it soak. Thenm I place a big bucket under the drain, and use an air powered solvent wand with a sock on the input. Change the diesel after you got it pretty clean, and spray upward to clean the cam/lifter gallery. Solvent wands are pretty cheeap at Harbor Freight.

Frank you mean one of these? I don't own one but your right they are cheap, and if they work good I will go get one. Oh and yes the oil pump is out of the machine.

Yes, that is the one. Sometimes, you get one that might not hold up too long (poor seals), but they're so dang cheap, I just buy a few at a time so I dont have to worry if they go bad. The one I have now has been good for several years now.

I put kerosene in a little sprayer I got at Lowes. The kind with a hand pump on top the canister and a wand on a 4 foot hose. The crankcase in my "G" looked just like yours and I rinsed it all out the drain hole into a cut-off plastic barrel. I can"t remember what I did with the contents of the barrel then. I"m sure whatever I did with it was not EPA approved.

A pump like JLG say's and a putty knife and a cheap 2 inch paint brush. Buy a couple of gallons of diesel or kerosene to go into the spry pump. Place a empty 5 gal. plastic bucket under the crankcase. Spray the diesel/kerosene all around the inside the crankcase. Remove sediment with putty knife and paint brush and spray again. Repeat with paint brush and spray again. After the spray pump is empty, pour the dirty diesel/kerosene through paper filters or rags and run it through the spary pump again. Clean (filter) the kerosene/diesel and store it in a 5 gal. container for cleaning use later. The spray nozzel that Frank mentioned is a good thing if you have a air compressor. If you are a poor shade tree mechanic like me, you improvise.

Fred, There is a cleaning product at the Dollar Stores that is called Awsome Orange. After you clean the heavy stuff out just spray it on,scrub the area down and rinse it out with water. This stuff is great for cleaning your hands and pre -applying to dirty clothes when your done.

I usually take the "crank squeezins" to my local Car Quest or other auto parts store. They have a big tank to dump all this stuff in.

Keeps the water well and the trout stream clean and the EPA off my back.

Good Idea. Half of that crap won't even burn unless you have some kind of incinerator!
