Just removed all valves and pistons. A lot of carbon built up on all of them. What is a good a cleaner to use? Can I use scrub pads to clean them? Any help would be great. Thank you

You can clean the valves with a wire wheel. The pistons are much softer. Be especially careful of the piston ring grooves.

I wouldnt worry so much about the pistons, but clean the valves.

Carb soak does wonders
