Been wanting to clean up a 1984 Atc200x. Was wondering if gunk engine degreaser would be safe to use on the motor, or would it ruin gaskets, rubber, etc. Thanks.

yes that will work.. will not hurt the engine just be careful if you use a power washer that can damage seals and out water where you do not want it..

if your trying to remove the mud stains and what not off the motor ?..your better off with some small wire brushes, and some easy-off over cleaner !. also..super clean from wally world works very well !..just don't let parts sit with it on them long ?, and wear gloves...it burns if left on your hands long !.lol.

Oven cleaner works great to remove stains. Simple Green also works quite well.

Spray engine degreasers are the best in my opinion because they are easy to use and easy to clean . They are less concentrated and does not harm the engine. Currently I am using Rx spray degreaser and it is working best for me

I use kerosene to clean oring chains and my engine. Sure has an odor but doesn't ruin seals and you can always dilute it with a few parts water or even add a little soap.
