What can I use to clean the brown cooked on residue off my cam and rocker arm assembly? You know, this shit
.

I have all kinds of cleaners, but I'm not sure if I should take it apart and use a toothbrush, or just spray it on and let it soak and wipe it off. I'm assuming carb cleaner isn't the best, but I have some induction cleaner and some foaming emission system cleaner. Just wondering what you guys have used in the past?

You can try oven cleaner... But you may have to have it hot tanked... Let the oven cleaner set for a couple hours and then scrub it with a brush.. If it doesnt come off then just have it hot tanked....

Is it worth the trouble to clean it or will it just make it look prettier for a little while?

I have a few rocker assemblies that look like that. And I have another one that is golden. Almost looks like its anodized gold... Just from not changing oil oil as often as you probablyshould. Try cleaning it. Although it wont hurt if you dont.

Who knows he did so many fucked up things during this swap I've been finding and fixing them since I got it. I'm surprised it runs so well. It's prob just because it's a honda.

I think I may have been already, I have two VTEC heads sitting in my shed, both sans valvecovers.

I sold the one VC on ebay for 39 bucks..

I only paid 20 for the whole engine!

You can't forget the weight loss from trashing it along with how much oil weighs.
