I think I'll read the side panel of the glove box at work, see if they are powdered or not, and bring a few home. Even though the engine compartment looks reasonably clean, once you get into the hidden recesses, 27 years of drips, road spray and general crud have really built up. I'll see how the work gloves do when I pull the steering pump completely out. Just getting it loose and the belts pulled, left my hands looking like they used to when I was crawling 'round inside a Detroit 12v71 for a few hours. Three scrubbings, and I'm not even close to clean. If everyone is swearing by them, I can get used to them. Thanks y'all.
