Cleaning oil-soaked brake shoes

Checked the archives about cleaning oil out of brake shoes.
Sounds like heat is the way to get the oil out of the linings.
Has anyone ever tried to clean them by boiling in water with detergent solution?
Seems to me that the oil would float to the top as it was released from the shoes.
My recent project ('48 8N)has brand new shoes with less than 100 hrs runtime, but are soaked from the trans. being overfilled.

As long as I keep her #1 daughter happy she doesnt care. Besides who could tell if it was brake shoes or one of her famous casseroles? Hey Tyman, the sister in law is still single, the one that I sent you the picture of. She went to the demolition derby stag last night, you are missing out my friend. I sent the pic to Dave#1, Ed and Jerry and they all say head west young man.

I have used brake cleaner befor and it seems to do a good job flush them several times and it evaporates off the lining. Mark H.

Already cleaned them with gum cutter and then flushed with brake cleaner.
Put them back on and they were a lot better, but don't come close to sliding the wheels or stoppping quickly.

I have 2 tractors that have clean brakes and one stops alot better then the other dose?? Then the 3rd one has disk brakes and you just touch the pedal and they will lock up and skid the tires. Maybe boiling them with some kind of detergent would work the useing clean water to get rid of the soap. 212 degs wont hurt the linings they get hotter than that getting used. Mark H.

I like a propane torch flame applied to each shoe surface. 10-15 minutes/ shoes does it for me. Never tried boiling. Seems like it would take a long time and then I'd have to clean the kitchen or lose my tractor priveleges. 8^). Steve 8N 169302

I wash them under hot water with detergent and brush real good. Dry them off, put the propane torch on them and watch the oil boil out. Then clean with brake cleaner. Good as new.
