    Anyone used a good heavy duty oil degreaser for engine? Brake cleaner can get pretty expensive wondering if anyone recommends anything better then that

    Really good. I like their wheel shine too, forget what's its called. Put it on and hit it with the pressure washer.

    I have tried multiple things over the years. The one thing I have the best success with is Simple Green, I use it on my truck / trailer, farm tractors, and my Harley as well. Keep in mind at 100% strength you don’t want to put it on your waxed vehicles, it will take the wax right off!

    Full strength for oil and grease then use my pressure washer…. Hot water pressure washer is best!

    50 / 50 mix with water all over my Harley if I was caught in the rain.

    Years ago I rode a old Harley with no chrome, just polished aluminum all over. Tried purple power on it and got pissed off with the results!!! Polished primary and cam cover turned a light charcoal gray color… took a lot of work to polish it back out.

    Modern aluminum may not have that results, but that was my experience with it on older stuff….
