Try multi purpose thinners from Lidl. Amazing stuff. Thinners is the way to go, but the Lidl stuff appears to be a bit stronger if the stuff you have proves not hugely successful.

Re: Engine Serial Number Suffix

MG denotes a PI engine. The HEBW means the original car had a Borg Warner auto gearbox and this is a High Compression engine as you state.
