Fitted the rebuilt poppet valve and we got on with cleaning the tubes.
MEK works. Like, REALLY works. It dissolves the thin nitrile mechanics gloves, but only seems to make the surface tacky on the thick black rubber gloves from Tesco.
Pic 1-port side rubbing strake, uncleaned.
Pic 2, starboard strake. Normal TFR scrub, then a few wipes with MEK on a white cotton dishcloth.
It did make the surface of the rubbing strake tacky for a few minutes, but it soon went away. (It's not PVC rubbing strake as far as I can tell)
