Powerwashing a Le Rhone Rotary

Here's Glenn powerwashing the Museum's Le Rhone Rotary engine off the Sopwith Pup. It uses Castor Oil for lubrication and after a certain time, the oil will congeal and harden. Since the engine hadn't been run in 6 or 7 or 8 years, it's pretty much frozen the engine up tight.
