Engine water wash should be performed every 50
hours unless in extreme environmental conditions
such as desert-like high sand environments, within
200 miles of volcanic activity, or within ten miles
and 1000 ft agl of salt water environments. Under
those conditions, the engine water wash should be
performed every 25 hours.
For best results on engine water wash
procedures, the engine should be washed twice
and rinsed three times. The second wash cycle
ensures that majority of the dirt and grime has
been removed from the engine. The third rinse
ensures that all of the cleaning solution has been
removed from the engine.
Currently B & B 3100 (MIL-C-85704, Type I) is

and remains an approved cleaner for environ-
mental restrictions permit. Where environmental
restrictions preclude its use MIL-C-85704, Type
II and Type IIA should be used. Continue to use
B & B 3100 where not restricted.
