This morning 0800   Hand delivered from California  4 cans of  400 grams , are in
my hands.

Those two sisters may be crazy , but when they promise they deliver.

Every reference I could find on using Bon ami  in engines --said do not substitute.

WHY ?    well here is one reason  Chlorine  ---  Bon ami say's NO chlorine.

The cans say  since 1886   and "Hasn't scratched yet"   On the MB site it said
that MB  was using it on windshields.  ---but these cans say 
"Do not use on Windows or Mirrors".  ?    Made in USA.

Comet  and Ajax and what not contains CHLORINE.

As I said to start with I have no need for using right now . To me it is an experiment.
I wanted to do for many years.  I have a 1.5L NA with glazed cylinders and it is
in a test stand with no intake or exhaust manifold installed. So I shall
do one cylinder to see what happens.---And I shall try Yellow Timesaver on
one cylinder.   Sure is fun to have a VW diesel just for fun and games. Hell
it cost me only 150 dollars  , that is a cheap toy ?. (got two for 300).

If that does not seat the rings ? --at least we have some CLEAN cylinders.
