Cleaning the Transmission and Transfer Case

Hi all I got my trans and transfer case out. What's a good way to clean all the grease and grime that has accumulated over the years. I do not want to break open any cases. Just want to clean them up and put a coat of paint maybe.

Thanks Joe

Can I hose off the case too. Is water going to get into places I don't want it to?

As long as it's sealed up, you should be good. I would slap some tape on any areas you don't want water to enter and avoid direct spray on said areas. There's a chance the oven cleaner will darken the aluminum but if you're going to throw a coat of paint in it, you'll be good.

I used a few cans on my T-18A/D20 then painted them up a bit. I found the gel/foam type to work better compared to the liquid spray that runs right off.
