Are you planning on repairing/revising the cylinder and piston? Did you do a leak down test prior to draining? Might want to think about pulling top cover and doing now since you're going to get half the job done by cleaning out the system. I use plain mineral spirits for all my cleaning projects. It won't harm any internal parts if any gets left over. It runs about $10 per gallon. If cylinder is worn, replace with a new one. If piston is the old three steel ring type, replace it with the NAA style. Install a new safety relief valve too either way. Just saying, if you just clean out sump, you may end up with a leaking cylinder later and have to drain and pull top cover anyway. Here's a LINK to our HOW-TO's for a document on 8N hydraulic repair. Replace oil with SAE 90 API GL-1 OIL like this:
