Simple precautions when washing engine disconnect all spark plug leads and place in a plastic bag and tie it tight with tape around the dissy place another plastic bag all wiring connector spray with wd40. then buy 1 litre of kero brush on the dirty spots. let for 15 minutes apply kero again get can of degreaser spray everywhere let stand for 10 minutes wash off with a fine spray . remove plastic bags reconnect leads and off u go
