Depends on the size of the part, parts location, type of crud, and what you can get away with.redtruckfarm wrote:What is the best way to clean parts these days? I don't have a parts cleaner.

While you are there, you might check the steering play at the worm wheel shaft. Both of mine had about 1/4 turn of slop that showed up as vertical movement of the worm wheel shaft. It's about a 10 minute job to unclamp the arm, tighten the worm nut, then reclamp the arm. Took about 75% of my steering play out. Don't get it too tight, as your steering will take Popeye to turn if you do.
