question

ok since the quad forum is basicly useless for technical information im asking here...i recently put a head that seals with o rings on my banshee...problem-the o rings on the replaceable compression domes were not big enough for the bore size (way overbored) to seel, so the head blew and all the coolant cooked and the the bore scuffed and cool stuff like that...so the water jackets in the head were full of oil and gunk and that cleaned up semi easily...but, the domes are covered with carbon that wont come off with solvant..now i think they should be all shiney and smooth to work best am i right? what can i do to clean them up? would a aluminum polish work? or do i just need some more elbow grease? thanks for all help

Re: question

ya aluminum polish, but if i were u, i would screw tryin to fix it, u shouldnt have bored in the first place and try to get you boring back to a 350, somehow, even if u will nedd to spen a lot of money, it just going to give u hell, banshees r fast and powerful enough, u dont need to bore them, i would spend your money on other motor mods and body mods, jsut my 2 cents

Re: question

honestly dude...scrub....maybe try some 3m rubbing compound, ever heard of that? and use a scotch pad, see if that works, 300exrider seems a little weird today, u can't bore it back down to a 350, u can resleeve it, but nah, puttin some elbow grease into it to clean it would be a cheaper way to go, try to find some rubbing compound at an auto body store or something of the sort, that should work, rub it on their with a scotch brite pad, and i think u'll be set.

Re: question

yeah thats what i was thinking..all i had availible at the time was wd40 and it wasnt doing the trick...and i am already making it a 350 (not by boring it though im stroking it to one lol) i already posted about that a while ago, also i didnt bore it..it blew up and when i popped the head it turns out the previous owner put massive pistons in it (he obviously was a moron)...but thanks for the insight anyway...

Re: question

Is it a Pro Design head?

It seems to me when i bought a PD head for my Banshee, There were different bore sizes available(not just ccs).

Yeah, scotch brite or SOS pads, maybe even fine steel wool would be the next thing to try.

Re: question

This might sound really stupid, but try Eagle One Aluminum Wheel Cleaner on this. Back in the day, when I was a lot tech at ford, we used that stuff to clean carbon off of stainless tailpipes. But...if you didn't want to try it, I understand.
