Carbon buildup

Does anyone know of an easy way to remove carbon from the exhaust port of a 4 stroke? There is a fairly thick layer in there and I wanted to get rid of it before I put the engine back in the frame. Any ideas at all?

Re: Carbon buildup

This is on the cyclinder head?
Spray carb cleaner on it and let it soak in then spray it again and hit it with a wire brush and spray it again..... that should work?

If it dosnt take all the carbon off just find somthing else to clean [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Carbon buildup

The top end is still together so if I scraped at it wouldnt there be a chance that some of the stuff would get into the cylinder? What if i made sure the exhaust valve was closed, scraped at it then took compressed air to blow all of it out. Would that work

Re: Carbon buildup

I think you would be better off using a vacuum cleaner to get the gunk out after scraping. I use a buck knife that has a fairly dull blade to do the heavy removal, just be careful! Bob
