  • 'Rinse' trans'
  • '47 8N. Tractor is split at the trans. to center section to get the 1st. and 3rd. shift rail out to repair the notch. new stick coming and will repair shift gates in the cover if too sloppy. I want to 'rinse' every thing with some solution under pressure while it is apart and don't want to tear things apart any further. Should I use Diesel?, kerosene? Mission creep already well under way. On this site daily for decades. Thank you very much, Chy

  • Mineral Spirits is a great cleaner and if you get some internally it won't hurt a thing. NAPA - 5 GAL buckets

  • Do not use a strong solvent such as gasoline. Doing so will remove the Glyptal coating that prevents the insides from corrosion.

    A small, electric pressure washer with warm water and soap would be ideal for the bell housing area. The use of common sense is assumed.

  • My late good friend and fellow NTC Admin Dan Howe told me he used Pine-Sol solvent to wash carbs with before and after he was thru cleaning internally. I've used it since on all parts after a good cleansing with spirits and it works well. He used a 50/50 mix of Acetone and ATF first. Who is 'OP' Dean?

  • You couldn't hurt anything if you tried. Fire away with all you got.
