my piston "soak"
It burns little oil, if any, probably because I used synthetic for most of its 22 years.
Anyway, While doing the head gasket repair, with the head OFF, I turned the engine so the pistons were all 1/2 way. Then poured Berryman B12(?) cleaner on each piston. Let it soak. Made sure it got between piston and cylinder, with a spatula. Did this for a week or so.
Then did the same with MMO. About 1/4 cup at most into each cylinder. Every once in a while, I turned the engine so the pistons went up and down.
Some yucky black glop drained from the empty oil pan. I was surprised.
Some cylinder(s) drained the B12 or MMO faster than others.
My cylinders were 185 psi for all 4 when tested this spring.
Maybe this can't hurt
