Anyone have a parts cleaner I can run some parts through this week?

well, you can make one pretty cheap. get a small flow fountain pump, a large rubbermaid tub, and the replacement lisle brush head from napa. wrap the pump in mesh screen, and your done. probably under 30 bucks total, and if you use the right tub, you can clamp down a lid pretty tight for storage...

I've got a cheapo one. I'm tied up Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday this week. Maybe one other night meeting Casey Campbell, TLCA treasurer who is in town. How much stuff and what day?

Actually, for as little as I use it, you guys could borrow it for a while, if you like.

What do you need to clean? You could probably use mine.

2 third members, 3 hubs, 2 '60 knuckles, spindles, rotors, etc... basically everything off the axles except the axles. I would like to do the axle housings too but that would take a big parts cleaner.

Shouldn't be a problem if ya scoop/wipe out the excess grease first before it gets washing into the solvent! :rolleyes: For the housings and actually you could do the 3rd member cariers too, take it to Denver Axle and have them hot washed....paint and all will be gone! Not that expensive at all!
