Cleaning engine...

For the first 2 years I had my 190SL, I cleaned the engine every time I washed it (40+ years of gunk in there...). Just engine cleaner on a WARM (not hot) engine, and a garden hose. It took a while, but it's now VERY clean! I just make sure to cover the brake fluid canister and re-lube my throttle linkage. That's it!
