.....to clean the exterior of the head? Several years ago I used mineral spirits on an F head to clean some dirt off. I accidentally let of some the liquid pool in a nook/cranny and after it had evaporated I could see that some of the metal was eaten away. Very minute, but it happened for sure. I don't want that to happen again.

It looks as the the valve cover gasket was leaking a bit and there are some other misc. stains that I'd like to remove. That way I can tell when a new leak springs. Any suggestions for a non-corrosive solvent that will help me in my cause?

not that they don't....................I'm just looking for a recommendation on a brand or a heads-up on a certain chemical.
