    Whats a good way to clean the crank? It was in a shed and someone swept the shed out and dust got all over. Someone said use break cleaner?

    What are the tq specs for the rod bolts and head bolts?

    Brake cleaner is the miracle degreaser for anything that needs to be cleaned of grease and Al Gore isn't behind your back.

    Scary sh*t right there, I use it to clean my king pin and hitch and grease off my gloves, but I use the stuff that evaporates quickly, and I never use heat on it like with a torch.

    The scary sh*t for me is I was using brake clean to set the beads on my truck tires because it is flamable if you ever seen the stuff burn it is like a flame thrower.

    At the diesel shop I hang around at they have brake clean in 5 gallon cans and use pump sprayers you light the mist of brake clean it flames up good :laugh:

    I will still use brake clean but I will be more carefull when using it. It burns like hell if you get some in your eyes.
