Kerosene also, but WD-40 is easier to use.

Bet you've never heard of using a little ATF in your engine oil to clean the internals before an oil change, either?
WD-40 on the chain has been such a hot debate item for so long, that I kept from using it until recently. I figured if so many people, including friends, using it and swearing by it, for so many years, then it has stood the test of time. I use it now, and feel completely comfortable in doing so.

More info on the ATF trick, please! How much is "a little", and how many miles before the oil change? Sounds interesting.

The whole WD-40 debate was from those who use it for chain lube.

I use maybe 1/2 qt. of ATF in my V8, which holds 5 qts. Warm the engine up, dump it in, let it idle for 5-10 minutes (no load), then drain and change.

ATF has a high detergent content and it does a nice job of removing the crud.. use it every 20K or so.

Cool. Thanks for the tip!

And yeah, i only use WD-40 to clean, not lube. I remember this kid's first post, stating that he used it to clean the chain only, then re-lube. Next thing I see is everyone raggin on him for using it. :/:

When I was building engines, I used some ATF on a clean rag as a final wipe of the cylinder walls before dropping the pistons in.

The block had been dipped in caustic, pressure steam washed, bored and honed, rinsed with degreaser at the machine shop. Then, after I was done doing the detail work on it, I wash with hot soapy water, rinse and blow dry. After all that, when I wiped the cylinder down, the rag would come back black. Should tell you something.

I don't think anyone really reads what he writes in his posts, anyway... but not because of what he writes, but because of his Avatar.

Very nice
