I don't know what's best, but I do know that if aluminum will go into it, you should not use Simple Green. It will damage aluminum parts and finishes.

On the cheap but works great? Diesel fuel, downside is it takes a little while on congealed greases and it also needs cleaning off if an oily residue is a problem. A little more expensive? Mineral spirits, works well and dries nicely. Bigger bucks but VERY nice? Solventated Naptha, pay attention to ventilation.

A spray can of 'carb and choke cleaner' to get the nasties off, a little diesel in the parts washer to deep clean, and a can of brake cleaner to clean and dry any residue off has never met a problem it can't handle.

Equal parts Kerosene and Mineral Spirits works well for me.

Good Luck...

They should have a 5 gallon bucket of "parts cleaner solution" or something like it at a tractor dealership/parts store.

I use automotive solvent in a Pasta cooker from K-Mart. Works great.
