Cool thread.

Does anyone in Australia know if we can get this stuff? I've never seen it.

I just searched "pine oil cleaner in Aulstralia", and it looks like Pine O Clean looks like a comparable product at first glance!

I don't think Pine O Cleen is the same stuff. Here's what's listed in the MDS:
  • Chemical Name
  • Benzalkonium chloride (Quaternary ammonium compounds) Proportion (%w/w) 1.5
  • Other ingredients classified as not hazardous according to NOHSC CAS No 8001-54-5 to 100

Unless of course there's 19% pine oil in the "other ingredients" section...

I did find some Pine Sol for sale, but it's lavender scented, and $46 for a 48oz bottle (roughly 1.5 litres). That's $AUD, which is currently worth more than $USD. See here: http://www.fishpond.com.au/Lifestyle.../0041294402729

Is it time for someone to buy a Grumman Goose and start bringing illicit Pine-Sol to Oz?

I let the stuff sit in the Pinesol (no water) for a few days, then pulled it out and gave it a quick once over with the toothbrush. I figured it would work, but I didn't think it would work this good!

I bought the 20gal Harbor Freight parts washer last week. Bought a jug of Pine Sol at Costco tonight. I'll mix it up and have a test run this week and let you guys know how it turns out.

I'm wondering what might be similar in South Africa. (Although given that the imitations of Pine-Sol don't work, there's probably not much chance,but still, worth trying.)
I first thought Jeyes Fluid but...

The Pine-sol treatment works great! Thanks. It's helped me get both bikes running, my little K11p and the littler M31.










I've also used it on the right carb of the Mighty Tempter and hope that cured my lean running problem on that side.

I'm thinking of soaking the radiator in this for a day or two. Can it do any damage? I'm mostly looking to loosen up the clogged fins. The radiator isn't painted. It's bare aluminum.

Should be fine. Radiator shops soak 'em in acid.
