Question

I have a '75 cb750 motor that i need to clean really good.

First off, whats the best way to get all the oil and grime off?

And next, the paint is coming off the cooling fins, so i want to remove the paint completely to repaint, should i use steel wool?

If you're painting it, first use a stiff brush and kerosene to get the built on gunk off. It's the best way. Then clean with APC and a finer brush like the wheel brush to get the kerosene and any other left over oils off.

 

You need to put a key in the paint and the metal for the new paint to stick. Scotch Bright pads work well for this. Burgandy color is the medium abrasive and should work well.

 

Prime and paint using engine specific paint only. I believe VHT makes some.
