Default How to keep it clean?

Looking for ways to clean manifold intake from fuel stains and also is there an easy way to clean the radiator from bugs and whatever else? Also as of now I have not left my oil pan behind but after taking a measurement of it, wow 2.75 off of the ground that is taking your live in your hand here on Indiana roads as they are at the present. Possibly I should give it some thought and raise the suspension a bit like .5
Any succession to any question is very appreciated.

#1 Eliminate fuel leaks first, then no stains.
#2 Portable Ppump type Pesticide sprayer with very soapy hot water works well on the
radiator.
#3 Quick reflexes and high steering ratio box.

I use mineral spirits or acetone on the intake.

What is the finish on the intake? There shouldn't be fuel leaks either way.

Spray Carb cleaner on a rag, works great.

Thanks anyway!

Stains like these? I use 409 Spray Cleaner -- works great on fuel stains, and doesn't harm any finish.
