I know the pros use pressurized systems to flush the block. I don't know how much, and I would also say it is hard to get much pressure/turbulence going in some of the corners. I have used a garden hose to not much effect. It took a long screwdriver with the head off of the block to clean the crud out of mine (enough that the block drain opened up!).haystax said:What about using a pressure washer to get crud out of the engine block - is this a good practice?
I've seen a few guys do it but wasn't sure that much pressure was good or not? Maybe just lots of time with the garden hose instead?
Fer cryin' out loud! Keep the cap on, and start shootin' them there feather-tailed rats before they eat yer wirin'!john0089 said:I flushed my radiator and over 50 acorns fell out....kinda scary.
