I would paint the block black and maybe the heads and intake aluminum. then black valve covers. and also while you have the room do the whole firewall and inner fenders in black,just regular paint no need for the engine paint on those parts. I could'nt tell you on the degreaser If i need to clean/de grease something I take a 20 oz. drink bottle to work with me that day and come home with some stuff that would peel the stripes off the highway(with permission of course). Cant think of what its called right now but I run a printing,slotting,die cutting press at work and its what we use to clean our print sections with.

As bad as it sounds, a lot of times I use gas. Carb cleaner works but will take off paint and all a lot of times, and it can get expensive for big projects, Wal-Mart has a real good on for $2 a can. I have used WD-40 in the gallon jug to get the heavy (petroleum cuts petroleum the fastest, not as fast as gas but WD-40 does work) and then wash with dawn or something like it. Scraping is sometimes necessary depending on how bad it is, I use a wood shive almost like a thin rook shingle or a big bondo spreader, they don't dig into the paint as bad as a metal scraper.

Good luck.

Yes, I'd guess 88-98. Magnet on back. Can use it anywhere on your Jeep, it'll reach! Inside and out.
