I used oven cleaner to get the stuck mud off of my diffs and looks good but my engine is still orange, except from where the top end was rebuilt. What should i use to get that old burnt on mud off?

i use purple power, it is a really strong cleaner and works good. it takes some scrubing, i used a tooth brush but other than that it works good.

You might wanna try some simple green... I used a blend of about 50% simple green and 50% water, mixed into a windex bottle, and i actually used it on my cars engine bay, and you just spray it all on, let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes then power wash it... My engine bay looked showroom after that, and the intake manifold was as shiny as tin-foil... My friend said it works so well because it has some acidic properties that only react slightly with aluminum, so in essence it's actually like power washing the dirty layer of molecules off your aluminum parts...

wow...I use muriatic acid that is used for aluminum dumptruck bodies....as fast as it's sprayed on hose it off...It's not really meant for use on a motor but it cleans like all heck and there is no scrubbing or touching whatsoever.also takes the oily grime right off

Wow...Mudlord.. That is a big difference.. I noticed that on the right side plastic, right next to the engine.. the before pic plastic was fine, but after it was clean..it looked like the plastic flaked or pealled. Was this from the introduction of this cleaning agent ??? Or was this just a wet / dry pic and it was always like that.. Hmmmm Just curious..

I think that is just a wet/dry effect in the pic, as I took off the plastic pieces when I sprayed the cleaner on. I got that cleaner at a little handymans market for 4 bucks a gallon!

After rinsing off as much mud as I can I spray simple green on every thing and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I rinse it off. I do this regularly and the engine shines like new. I spray every thing with WD 40 after it is clean and dry when I am going to store the machine for a little while. It smokes a little when first started, but not for long. No squeeks, no rust spots, and keeps every thing looking shiney and new.
