its best to use a cleaner but if you're lazy theres this gasket remover spray that i found washes off the toughest baked on grease! it sprays ice cold but burns skin on contact

chemdip will eat gaskets and rubber, but it looks like your motor is disassembled so that shouldnt be a problem. no clue where to buy it, ive had the can at the house forever. its like the legal form of "the dip" from rodger rabbit its freekin awesome

If the part will fit in a crock-pot, stew it in DOT 3 on medium heat for about 48 hours. No scrubbing. Wont damage a thing. Will look like factory new, guaranteed.



Dont tell the wife you used her crock pot.

Brake fluid?? WTF never heard that one!



If it wasn't already posted oven cleaner is pretty good at attacking grease just don't let it sit on aluminum too long as it is caustic..
