This is what I do on my case Ih combines and I've never had any problems with rust, bearings or mice. Take off every shield possible. Blow off thoroughly. Flush everything out with a garden hose, including the insides, until no more grain comes out. I park the combine on a slope so all water runs out of clean grain auger and then turn it around so all water comes out bottom of unloading auger. Then pressure wash everything. Let it dry off and look for spots I missed. Pressure wash some more. Flush and rinse with garden hose again. Hand wash sheet metal. Meticulously clean cab. Wax. Spray all insides with diesel fuel and oil. Lube all chains and grease everything and then engage separator and run it for 15 minutes. Then i make a list of everything i need to repair before i forget. This makes it so much better when working on it in off season and if there's no grain or dirt you won't have any problems with mice. It takes me 3 hard days to get mine ready to park. I don't know about the JDs, but Case IH designed their machines to where you can thoroughly clean out the insides with water and not leave wet material trapped
