Very interesting way of cleaning an engine! But I'm guessing that finding 100% lye now might be difficult (or a hassle) due to its use in making crack. Sigh.

100% lye that's heated...I've not heard this solution for gunk yet...does it work as advertised?

Great idea. I'll build one of these with the next drum I find.
