Re: 302 engine

My fathers got a heat tank, but it's more for smaller engines like 4-wheelers and lawn mowers. I've got the block and heads soaking in a degreaser. I've dismantled the carburetor as well, is that something that's safe to soak into a degreaser or heat tank?

I know that there will be a lot of soak, rinse, power wash, repeat along with elbow grease just from watching my father fix/repair lawn mowers at his work. Sometimes he brings them home, I wasn't sure if it's the same principle just a larger application.

Is there anything I shouldn't soak in a degreaser? My theory is if it's metal it's safe.
