RE: engine cleaning

Thanks, you made me look into the subject more closely.

Boeshield does work to the same spec as LP 3.  The spec is for a water
displacing corrosion inhibiting compound (CIC).  There is, however
another spec for another organic CIC which is harder and longer lasting
than LP 3, although not specified as water displacing.  This other
compound is LP B1007.  There is no equivalent Boe__ part.

There's yet another spec for a CIC that also displaces water, like both
of the above combined.  The LPS Labs formula is called "Procyon" and I'm
not sure about availability, both from a where to buy as well as if it's
available in aerosol (as opposed to 50 gal. drums!).  There are a couple
of other vendors which have qualified to this spec, but their names were
unfamiliar to me and I didn't expect them to be available to us
noncommercial types.

cheers, Robert
