I have read a few older posts couldn't answer my question. I have my Farmall F-20 comletely clean of heavy grease. I want to powerwash it one more time before sandblasting strictly to remove a light film of oil in a few spots. I want all of the oil off the castings to not drive it into the pores of the metal when blasting.

I wanted to ask, will Gunk Engine Brite leave a film on the metal that after sandblasting, paint won't stick to? I know this sounds a little overboard, but I just want to check. I thought even if it did leave any residue, the film of degreaser would come off with the sandblasting or wax and grease remover prior to paint. Am I correct in thinking this? Or is oven cleaner a better choice?

I'm using a commercial sandblasting unit and will be spraying PPG Omni in a full booth. This is my first tractor and the guy with the booth wanted me to look into other types of degreaser.

Thank you for your help.

yup, gunk will leave a film. load your paint spray gun with cheap lacquer thinner, then turn the pattern knob all the way in till you get a tight pattern, then wash the tractor down with it. just before spraying, do the same with some pre-cleano type wax and grease remover. it will get all the residue out and not leave anything.

Thank you! Are there any types of degreaser available that do not leave a film, or should I plan on cleaning it with thinner anway? I had heard of Simple Green but didn't know much else about it. Do you recommend using the thinner before sandblasting and then wax and grease remover after blasting? Thank you.

save the thinner wash for after sandblasting. you can use simple green or purple power cleaner before to degrease,then pressure wash. use a blow gun and get the water off right away to avoid any flash rust. then blast, thinner wash and prep for paint.
