I need to clean up my oil bath air cleaner to repaint on my 60. Whats the best way to get this thing clean enough to paint. I can remove the bottom cup and the top cast piece but is there a way to remove the wire mesh from inside the steel barrel? Its got lots of oily dirt on it and I want to steam wash it. The top piece has a nice layer of oily gunk inside if it as well.

Different color tractor, but I took mine to the car wash , took an many pieces off as I could and set it on Hot-Wash and let 'er rip. Inside, down, all around, Not saying that's correct, but it worked for me.

Start buy soaking it in a bucket of diesel fuel. (SAFELY!)

Let it soak for a while, swish it up and down. Repeat. And repeat.

that's how I do it - get an appropriately sized bin and just let it soak in diesel for a couple days while I work on other stuff.

Doesn't have to be for that long, even a quick bath will help.

Then get another bin and wash it with soap and water - then rinse with a hose. Compressed air to dry.

Don't try and take it apart anymore as you will ruin it. They are spot welded together. I use some strong soap and then pressure wash with HOT water until the water looks clean coming out from both directions. Seems to get them pretty well cleaned out.

I would flush and soak it in Stoddard solvent or a similar degreaser and air blow it out to dry . Then using high detergent oil it will clean up any left over thru the natural flushing it does under normal use .
