    I just cover the distributor and carb. Soak it down with some gunk engine cleaner and blast it off.

    my truck's not dirty, it's earth tone paint

    When i de-greased my engine, i also did the rest of the truck at one of those places that have the preasure washers. You put in a buck and you get a few minutes, worked pretty well seeing as how i had A LOT of mud on my truck also and didnt want it all in front of my house on the street
