Unscrew everything!

When cleaning your motor, you really to remember it takes more than one part to make machinery, so therefore you can’t treat it like one part. A true enthusiast will take the motor apart, piece by piece to clean and oil them all, only then can you really know your motor is in good working order. Don’t be afraid of this process, if you’re not sure how, consult friends or a local mechanic. It really is worthwhile.

Clean, Clean, Clean!

Once you’ve made sure everything is in working order, no cracks or splints along any of the parts, next step is to clean them. Cleaning your motor parts can be a long process if done by hand, some people use grease cutting soaps and a stiff brush. This technique will work, although give imperfect results. It is also time consuming and uneconomical as the motor will have to be re-cleaned again very soon.
