I have to say that the brake cleaner works pretty well to loosen things up. The whole hoop garage was toxic, but it helps. I am willing to accept that if the tractor isn't taken completely apart, it is always going to be a bear to get that under the floor pan/drives/axle area. No matter what chemical I use, it still requires a brush, scraper and powered wire brush. I did find that my die grinder with a wire brush fitting takes of the caked on hard stuff better than an angle grinder. I also accept plucking a few wires out of the body areas I forgot to cover with the die grinder because the wheel brushes basically tear themselves up.
