The Best Way To Clean Dirty Engine Parts

hey guys welcome back to the channel
today I have got my work cut out for me as you can imagine engine parts are some
of the dirtiest parts on a dirt bike so I’m gonna show you how I go about
cleaning up the cr250 engine parts behind me and towards the middle of the
video I’ve got something really exciting for you guys so make sure you stick
around for that alright I am gonna get scrubbing take a
good look at this stuff cases are pretty dirty everything’s got
oil on it some corrosion some rust but with help the parts washer this stuff
will be looking fresh pretty shortly here now a lot of you guys have seen my
other heated parts washer but this is a different one just recently finish this
tank up same exact concept but improved upon a couple things so perfect
opportunity to test it out since these cases are the dirtiest part of all I’m
gonna get them soaking in the bottom of the tank before I start scrubbing
anything else while those parts are soaking I’m gonna scrub up some of these
smaller parts just like the other tank this one is heated as well but it’s got
a pump on it and I’ve added a flow-through brush on the end of the
line check this out this is pretty sweet turn the pump on and we’ve got warm
fluid flowing through the brush should work awesome man these parts turned out looking great
but now it is time for the real test let’s see what we can do with these
cases Wow I’m frickin impressed this stuff
looks amazing all that dirt and grime is completely gone what if I told you guys I built this
exact tank in just a couple of hours for under $200 and you can do the same thing
too if you do any sort of parts cleaning dude you’ve got to have one of these
they’re super nice to have my favorite part about it is having my hands at a
warm tank during the cold winter months it’s freaking sweet so I built a
tutorial on exactly how to make your own heated tank covers every single step
along the way how to heat it what degreaser to use and what ratio
what parts you’ll need and where to buy them the list goes on and on there is so
much information in there click the first link down in the description to go
check it out and now for the exciting part I’ll be giving away this exact tank
without the fluid of course all you have to do to enter the giveaway is join the
course within the first three days and after those three days the price on the
course is going up I like to reward people who take action and don’t wait
around the only requirement for the giveaway is you’ve got a beat in the US
though unfortunately I can’t ship this thing overseas either way it’s a win-win
you get to learn how to build your own tank and possibly win a tank out of it
alright enough babbling let’s get back to cleaning to hold the transmission and kickstart
gears in a place during the cleaning process
I’ll put zip ties on the ends of the shafts now it’s time to drop these parts
into the tank and get them soaking well I’ve got all these parts cleaned up
and all that remains is ordering up some replacement parts and slapping this
thing back together as of right now I’ll be replacing the crank cylinder the
inner clutch hub clutch plates all the gaskets and seals and of course dropping
in a fresh piston thank you so much for joining me on this build guys it’s been
a ton of fun so far and there’s a lot more to come don’t forget to go enter

  6. Hey I was just wandering I have some corrosion on my cases and I just want to know if aluminium cleaner (acid like solution) would damage my cases?

  7. You should go with the wrench rabbit rebuild kit. Has everything needed to rebuild top and bottom end

  8. If it was 10 bucks I’d probably get it but man 25 is to much the learn how to do it

  9. I see your videos and I follow you, but I think you only know how to disassemble and disassemble.

  10. Love the vid but cmom man for 25$ your selling information thats available on google

  11. Awesome, thanks for making that course on the parts washer. Went ahead and enrolled. I'll be investing in that sometime this year. Thanks so much and keep up the great work!

  13. Love you videos! Keep up the good work. I'm going to start building the tank tonight!!!

  14. Honestly, people will down vote me here, but I've been following for months and commented multiple times trying to get Cameron to explain his parts washer. I have bought one myself form Harbor Freight. Finally get a video about it but now I have to pay 30$ on how to build it??? I thought that is what you Youtube is for? This is some straight EA Games pay to win level stuff man. Lost a fan today…..

  15. I think engine parts are some of the cleanest. Always in oil, so no rust. Hopefully never touch dirt or anything like it, so they’re just oily. Once the oil is cleaned off there’s really nothin on them. Just my opinion ig lol

  16. Hey cameron, quick question. Does the water get into those main engine bearings and mess them up? I wanna clean up my bike but im worried ill ruin some of my decent parts

  17. Hey man do you know where i could get mag wheel cleaner in europe, i cant find it anywhere!

  18. How did you get the cylinder to look like it was semi polished in the thumbnail, didn't see you use a scotch? Lmk thank you

  19. Cameron Niemela: What kind of cleaning solution are you using ?

  20. Nice videos Cameron. I have one question. I used an engine cleaner to clean my cases and now I have lost the shine of the aluminium. Does it ever happen to you?

  21. i gave used dollar store oven cleaner and got decent results thanks 4 d video

  22. Hey Cameron, I've watched you videos for the past 6 months and love them greatly. I'm learning SO MUCH and because of your vids, I've built up enough confidence to have already bought and flipped five bikes since October of last year as a means to teach my 10 yr old son to learn with me. Keep up the generosity of sharing your knowledge and experiences with the world around you!

  23. Hey man awesome. I have a question. On my bike the cases are Black. How Can i make Them look like these cases. Should i sandblast or What should i do?

  24. The fingers on the clutch basket looked in great shape no notches were the friction plates wack up against. Love your cleaning tub Cam, do you use kerosene or some other solvent. Love your work mate. Damm I thought I don't qualify for give away's. I wish I lived in the states part's for my 01 kx250 would be much much easier to get!

  25. What detergent are you using ? And any links on how to make the cleaner.

    Great stuff

  26. If your done washing doesnt the parts and bearings get rusted?

  27. What parts cleaner/degreaser are you using…. It don't look like simple green in the video

  28. I have four wheeler cases that are pretty ugly due to the last owner letting the mud cook on the cases and I wanna clean them good . The cases are split apart but Will it hurt the bearings at all ? And how do you dry them ? Air dry ? Thank you it be a big help

  29. You probably won’t see this but what did you put in the heated tank like fluid wise

  30. Cam, what are you using for cleaning fluid? I assume water and………….? Thanks, Tom

  31. Перфекционист. Скоро и я так буду упражняться.

  32. Nice video! How much degreaser do you put in the tank? i suppose its a 75Liters tank? thanks!

  33. how would you know what parts can rust or not? like is the crank aluminum so it doesnt rust? or would you recommend spraying everything down with WD-40 just to be safe?

  34. I noticed you didnt remove the needle bearings for clutch pull in case, why not? I rebuilt mine and they were the hardest part of the build.

  35. Looks great, a little too much elbow grease though, need to find a more time efficient method.

  36. С чистыми деталями качество сборки на высоте,и работать приятнее)

  37. I'll be replacing the crank, the cylinder, the hub the plates but my ocd compels me to scrub them

  38. I love these videos. I learn so much by watching you assemble and disassemble. But one question though: why did you waste time cleaning the parts you were going to replace anyways?

  39. That parts washer looks awesome!!!!! Can I still find out how to build one I know you made this video a long time age.

  40. I built one of your tanks!!!!! Wish I had years ago it’s awesome. Thanks.
