Default Re: salvageable Engine?

well, I was mostly curious. The color of the fins on the head was gold. I told him to check the cylinder walls, and he said that it was okay. I don't plan to use the engine on my current proj. I figured that if he could get it cleaned and the rings checked out, then he's got a spare engine for parts or as a back up. I'm sure I had him running it without enough oil. What can be used to clean the carbon off? I know you can't use something very abrasive because you run the risk of scratching the piston and so on.
