Just pulled my iron SCJ heads off what causes carbon to build up on the pistons,valves and combustion cambers it's comes right off the pistons with a razor blade I'm have SS valves and harden exhaust seats install and would like to know if this is normal if not how to keep it from happening once I get it back running thanks for and help

Sound like cold operation in my case for years I would just start it and let it warm up and shut it off that won't be the case when I get it back running I plan on driving it like I stoled it thanks for to info
