Dusty desert engine bay, wash?
Ok, I'm hesitant to ask this question because I think I know what I'm going to get...but here you go. How bad of an idea is it to wash a 7.3 engine bay that hasn't been gone over thoroughly first? i.e. wiring harnesses, pigtails, etc. Engine is in relatively perfect condition, no leaks, no codes, runs great, etc. It's just dirty. Is there any component of the engine I should completely avoid? I'm mostly worried about the electrical system.
Desert dust is starting to build up and I want to head this off sooner rather than later.
