Quick clean of a damaged vintage Enya .09

Post  rsv1cox on Fri Feb 16, 2018 9:38 am

The Enya .09 glow engine, my all time favorite.  I have so many of them that by actual mathematical calculation laid end to end they would stretch from my house to Eric's.

Like a sick puppy that needed a home I plucked this one off ebay a couple of weeks ago and cleaned it without disassembly this morning.  





Hot Simple Green soak while turning the crankshaft CW & CCW too hot to handle but gloves ease the pain.



Hot water rinse still using CW & CCW action.



Dry with paper towel and blow out with compressed air followed by the heat gun.  Spray with RemOil more CW & CCW.  Blowout asgain.  Finish with after run oil and polish with favorite dirty rag.



Some previous owner thought it necessary to drill out the back two mounting holes to 3/16".





Finished
