For cleaning the small parts, gears, pawls and bearing races I use Odorless Mineral Spirits. Soaking the parts for a while loosens the old gummy grease and gets the parts ready to be re-installed. Some grease gets so hard that a small brass brush is needed to get it all off..
Tupperware works well for soaking parts in, just don't tell my wife where it goes...

other sizes: small medium large
