Simple Green. Spray water on it then simple green let it sit for a few mins then rinse it. It works best with a pressure washer even the sprayers at the car wash places don't seem to have as much power as my parents pressure washer. I used to do it when the engine was cold not sure if that's the right way or not.

on another note today my ranger got a new sub and enclosure when i had duh moment and remembered that, since my sub box is to shallow for my sub, i can mount it inverted. I also tuned my radio settings so now music sounds 200 times better even though the sub isn't even wired yet.

Performance has not been good since engine rebuild. Timing was checked & spot on. Found a blow on the joint between the turbo and the downpipe, got new gasket & went to fit it - last mechanic??? to work on truck had cross threaded a bolt into the turbo and the head sheared off leaving a stub of bolt. It was downpipe off, turbo off and into vice to remove stub. While turbo was out noticed that oil was leaking from pipe operating gate valve, the company that rebuilt it had put a 6mm bore hose onto a 4mm pipe so the pressure was not operating the valve and causing 'diesel knock'. All back together and a different vehicle.

I replaced my 2 piece drive shaft with a one piece from my 99 parts truck , it was a perfect fit . The truck drives so much better with the one piece shaft . No more vibrations , better acceleration( at least my the seat of the pants dyno ) . I finally got all the parts from the 99 parts truck . It will be going to the bone yard next week

The new bearings arrived, ready for reassembling the front end. Painted the new front brake shields, they were crying for something beyond sheet metal. Bought a dome light on eBay, after cursing the sniper who grabbed two other cheaper possibilities out from underneath me. Waxed the hood while waiting for the UPS shipment (they were late today, must have been a busy day).

Ordered two new 9 inch wide (2011 size) gel Black and chrome FORD oval overlays from a FORD liscensed UK manufacturer for 21 pounds ($32.83 CAD), including shipping. They can be used as overlays or put on directly, being large enough to cover all the blue in the stock emblem.
