Foil Delete

I got a wild itch to decide to clean underneath my hood during college spring break. It is absolutely disgusting! The previous owner never cleaned it, is what it looked like. I also decided to go ahead and do the foil delete while I'm there. What's the best way to get the left over insulation and glue off of the pipe? It's on there good. I don't have a very good wire brush. I tried hot, soapy water and it isn't working either. I'm at a standstill with my truck taken apart right now.

Aircraft remover will take it off. Just make sure you are wearing gloves when you use it. It is extremely strong.

Get some 3-M adhesive remover, and alittle elbow grease.I got lucky I have a bench grinder that has a wire wheel that made it real easy.

But where gloves and do it where it's well ventilated

No problem. It will probably be Rust-Oleum brand. Just spray it on the pipes, let it eat the adhesive for about 5-10 minutes and then wash it all off.

All i can say is good luck and wear gloves as stated that stuff will cut the s--t outta you and if you dont have a wire brush just go to harbor freight and pick up the brush kit that goes right in your cordless drill chuck

Got it all back together. The aircraft remover worked great. Now I've ran into a problem. It's not been plugged up in about 3 days and not ran in about 3 days. It's been below freezing all week. It was hard to crank, and when it did, blew loads of white/blue smoke. It died on my after a few minutes, but cranked back. There's no DTC's or anything. I am a little low on oil, so I'm gonna go buy some oil and see if that fixes it. I'm at a loss now.

I found the problem. My truck has been vandalized.. I found my oil pan plug laying on the ground, with no oil in the truck at all.. I filed a police report and an insurance claim, just incase there is any major damage. I'm taking it to my diesel mechanic tomorrow morning.

That sucks, my truck was broken into a month or so ago, they didn't get anything because i don't have anything in the truck. Hopefully you didn't burn the bearing
