Rather than hi-jacking Matt's thread about de-greasers, I'll try to explain my problem.

The TT has the worm-drive Ruckstell, covered with obvious oil and grease staining from over the years. A hot 3500 psi power-washer with detergent removed most, but would not remove all... Certainly not enough to consider paint-prep. Suggestions, please.

Take Care; Behave; Keep Breathing (and)
"Happy T-ing!"

Pulled my worm gears apart last fall. Really nasty grease! I wound up using several applications of Easy Off oven cleaner followed by scrubbing the gears with an old toothbrush and 3M green scrubbing pads. Be sure and wear rubber gloves and a face shield.

Marv; I use oven cleaner and let it soak for about 1/2 hour

-G.R.-
'What?' does one use to then get rid of the oven-cleaner film?
Thanks.

Dawn and a stiff bristled brush

Take all to a good auto repair place and have it hot tanked. Better for the environment any way.

I second what Mark said. I leave mine there on Friday and they soak it all weekend. Dan

You will still have to deal with rust, but the stuff comes out clean. No mess no fuss no fumes
