I bring the pistons to tdc and use a wire wheel on a drill. Dont press too hard and you will do fine.

...or you could just do what I did, decide to do some head work, then once you have the heads off, decide "what the hey, why not just go ahead and get some forged pistons...and bore it over a little..and hey, why not throw in a new cam and some purdy new roller rockers..." =)

Hi Shaun,

A wire wheel will work fine. We use a scotch brite pad on an air tool at work, if you have access to air tools that works very well. If you have any questions send me an email or call me.

A quick note.....if any carbon is left...it would probably have sharp edges after mechanical cleaning (wire bruching etc.).

Carbon deposits already promote very hot spots (an invitation to pinging)....if it has sharp edges, even more so.
