HiYa Dan-
I use white vinegar to remove old dirt, grit, paint, and on ferrous parts rust. It works very good, albeit a slow process -may take a few weeks of soaking. I use it on all my old Ford tools and tractor parts when restoring. It will get the part right down to the bare metal, without ruining the natural patina that sandblasting will do. Aluminum will oxidize. For larger parts I've used a kiddie swimming pool but for tools and smaller parts I just use a plastic dishpan. I've had a MS TSX241 carb soaking in a plastic coffee can now for over a year. It was caked in dirt/grease/oil and frozen up. Three months ago I took it out, washed it up in mineral spirits and is now freeing up but back in the vinegar bath to help the last little bit.
