decarboning pistons

etc. So waiting on parts, I took the pistons off and soaked them in 50% simple green and pine sol. Over night worked well, but I let them soak for a week, and literally wiped all the carbon off with a paper towel. Even that really hard stuff on the sides above the rings.

Sorry no pictures, but I didn't think it was really going to work.
