I use a Heavy Duty cleaner called HDL, it's a marine bilge cleaner, you mix
with water, spray on and hose off.  I use it for Transmissions and Engine
cleaning.  The best stuff I've found.  It's caustic and it etches Aluminum
if you leave it on too long but works very well.

I just use Cleaning Solvent in my parts washer, works as well as anything
for CV Grease.

Whats a good parts cleaning fluid for a "wash tank"?

I want to clean up some CV joints to have a spare set of axelz for "instant
replacement" if needed.

The CV grease is mean stuff to wash off.

I suspect there are different fluids with different effectiveness. I have
used gasoline ((:*O kerosene, varsol, diesel, and for carbs, Methyl hydrate.

What is the fragrant stuff used by many shops?

I have a small cleaning box with a little pump and nozzle to squirt stuff
with, suitable for bearings and small parts.

Just don't want to re-invent wheels, or blow myself up.

If I was going to wash down the exterior of an 020 tranny, whats best, and
what kind of drip catcher or pan (plastic tote or kitty litter tray) would
be suitable?
