    OK guys...

    I do not have a parts cleaner, but I have some pretty nasty part that need attention. I'm painting absolutely everything that I can with orange paint.

    so for I'm using a combination of gunk, break cleaner, or a wire wheel to clean the parts up. then we have a small bathroom which has a big mop sink that I'm scrubbing the stuff with dawn and hot water...

    well to make a long story short its working OK on the smaller parts, but I'm making to big of a mess in the bathroom with the bigger parts.

    I'm curious how everybody else clean their parts?

    Jeff, Rent a high pressure washer from your local rental jto get the heavy crude off. I use a soap made by Coastal called Power Washer (purple) that I brush on and let it sit a few minutes then power wash one more time. Then I put the parts that can be moved into the sun to get hot, spray them with oven cleaner and let them sit in the sun for a while. Brush them and wash with water. Even the paint comes off.
