for the most part yes it will come off, but zachs mud that he has on the motor is different than that, you can just scrape/brush it off.

Probably has lime in it and has more or less become cement. We have that problem here at the steel mill as lime was used to harden the mud in certain places and now they have to KEEP it wet to keep the dust down for environmental reasons!

The result is mud that hardens like cement and is very difficult to remove.
