    I use the small stainless or brass brushes that they sell at Harbor Freight, Lowe's, HD etc. The ones the size of a toothbrush. They work perfect without any cleaner on them. If you need to do it right now, use an old toothbrush and a little WD-40 (or even dip the brush in gasoline).

    Drop it into the PBR...let it soak for a week or 2...throw both in the trashcan...

    Seriously...spray it with brake cleaner...and clean it with a wire brush....

    Hold with an old pair on needle nose and heat to bright orange with a torch, then brush or blow out with air.

    That'll work...
    If you sprayed brake cleaner on it while you were heating it...
    Would that speed the cleaning process?

    Don't know whether it would speed it up but it would be entertaining. Could you record a YouTube of the process, Slapper?
