Mine is so dirty inside I was thinking about putting seat covers on backwards to keep me clean. The poor girl.

I low pressure wash around my engine bay with the degreaser first then the spot free rinse. I don't like spots!!

Any more tips or products that you guys use to keep it clean under the hood? My truck is in need of some serious TLC. Thanks.

Damn Im jealous. I just took mine this weekend to the car wash and washed the engine bay. I put it on the soak mode for low water pressure and spray the motor while its running. First note, I started the truck and drove straight to the car wash, turned her off and sat there for a bit. Temps were about 150. Then I turned the truck on and soaked the engine bay. Then I rinsed without squeezing the handle for extra pressure.

Begining of the year I used a soap bucket with a rag and wiped everything down in the engine bay, then used the garden hose fer a rinse. The car wash is a quick dust off. Need to take pics. First I thought you had to use some type of dressing, but you dont, it shines nicely without anything.

Wayne, guess you DO still check in here every once in a while! You still got the puller? Been doing any pulling this year? I can't remember seeing you in any of the results threads. Thought maybe you took the year off to build up for next year or something???

I have been busy, moved back to Florida, moved into a new house, moved our offices here from Ohio, etc.

I sold the LB7 back in March, IIRC. Sold it to a friend in Hamburg, PA. They are using it for a DD. I still have the motivation to do some pulling, but here in FL. there is not enough to warrant a build. One day, but not tomorrow.

If something shorts out don't blame me!

I have never hada single problem with washing the motor. I was h it maybe once a month. I hose it down, spray degreaser/cleaner on it, let is sit then scrub it with a brush. I just rinse it down after that, blow it off, let it sit in the sun then spray Undercarriage Spary form Adams on everything. Dirt don't stick to it!
