I actually soaked some of my parts last night in Denatured Alcohol and it cleaned them suprisingly well. Can get it at the hardware store.

Is Z-best engine cleaner still around? It was a pretty good alternative to the antifreeze in a crock pot, but you had to be careful with certain plastic parts or on anodized surfaces.

This is what I do. Takes about 10-20 minutes (time to boil water + strip engine apart)
