I've spent a fair bit of time trying to clean my TD pistons by hand, by soaking
in laquer thinner, and using a broken ring. I now have significantly less skin
on fingers (they are *sharp*), and a long way to go. I've been quoted $40 to
bead blast them. I forgot to ask if this will remove all the carbon from in the
ring grooves, does anyone know? I'm getting a little worried about damaging
the edges of the grooves during the cleaner, so was thinking bead blasting
might be a safer way, especially with these expensive TD pistons...
