and the most imporant clean of all is a very very high powered high pressure burning hot steam clean with a powerful cleaner added...on the OUTSIDE of the engine.
Always figured it was wrong as I never saw excess crap in the oil, but didn't know if that were universal.

The soak works for me. That much I know and have the stats to prove.
