During the Fall i blew a brake line in the riv, so i got it home and parked it in the garage. I got around to checking it out in November, well, basically i discovered all the lines should be replaced. Upon further inspection i was completely disgusted on the overall condition of the riv.(broken sway bar link, neglected valve cover gasket and LIM leaking all over, sludge and varnished oil, just a mess) , So Time for A Overhaul.... lol

Worked on it today pulled the engine tore it down yuck...
this is what im up against,

How do i even begin to clean that mess up ? Ive got a few Thoughts, just need to be pointed in the right direction
1- I was thinking of putting sea foam in a spray bottle and spray it and work it in .
OR
2- Please don't flame me for this thought.... Soda blast it.. poop ,,,the media is supposed to just dissolve with water. So it would be a blast , flush W/ Water, then oil process..
3- Break it down all the way

Here's a shot of the bay ,everything is pretty much coming out ,to be cleaned and painted then reinstalled.

If you have the engine out ,just have a engine shop steam clean it.they'll throw it in the solvent and remove all the crud for about the same it would cost you to buy a bunch of cans of solvent.

heay,are ya gonna remove that balance shaft?

Sonic steam/solvent is the best way.cleaning the internals of an engine with all its nooks and crannies..I dont see any other way that would cost you less in effort and money.
