guys,
what is the best way to clean burnt oil from the head and valves?
I will knock off any big stuff with a piece of wood, but what will soften it all up with a little soak?

Make sure the valves are closed, fill the head with wd-40 and let it sit overnight. The carbon deposits will wipe right off.
