I"d soak a dirty oil bath cleaner in a 5 gallon bucket of diesel for about a week and then decant off the fluid and dump the dirt out of the bucket and repeat til it got clean. I did that on my TO-30.

Thank you gentlemen; I think I can find a 5 gallon bucket& diesel fuel that will do the job. It may take a long time to clean since mine has been sitting off the tractor in the corner of my shed for over 20 years [ the tractor has been down that long.
A second q? would such fluid as lacquer thinner or reducer help in scouring the interior and the mesh to return it to nearly pristine condition?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Diesel fuel will do just fine. The filter has enough capacity that a small amount of impurities still in there won't effect it in the least.
