Hello
How do you remove baked on mud from cylinder head regular hose pressure is useless is there any kind of chemical that I can spray on cylinder head to remove mud. I started to use a small wire brush but can’t access most of the head. Is it ok to use a pressure washer on cylinder head
Thanks in advance
Joe

Spray it down good with water and then wait, spray again and perhaps wait some more. Even baked on mud will come off but it takes time to let the water saturate it.

Other than that there is always a screwdriver and a putty knife.

Just don't spray your rad directly with high pressure. You can damage the fins very easily, reducing your cooling capacity.

One of the best things for cleaning the engine is soak out all down well with a hose , then in a spray bottle mix 1L or 1 Quart of very warm water with 15-20ml or 1/2oz of regular dish soap. Spray on the engine she let it soak for 15 or 20 min, hose off, repeat if needed. You can also use a good stiff plastick bristle brush, a bottle brush works great for tight/deep areas.
