Ok all how are you cleaning crud and grease from inside barrel jackets, on parts kits. always used rag screwed to old mop handle in the solvent tank. Much older now and don’t mind spending a little compared to when was in my twenty’. Found this place all size diameter and length brushes, maybe late to game but wanted to share going to need a big pegboard above solvent tank for all the sizes lol.

The 30L ones on Ebay just under 250 work ok. Fit 5 gallons of cleaner. Will fit a barrel jacket fully if off a trunion, easily fits a complete left side plate assembly.

The recent crop of kits in the last month or so are very greasy. The ones before that were just dirty. Having this thing saves me a bunch of time and screwing around.

Really all about finding a cleaner thst works well to cut the grease and work with the ultrasonic. Tried simple green and purple power in it and was very dissappointed in the result.... the crc does a lot better.

I use cheap metal cooking pans ($1 at the dollar store) and soak in paint stripper. Long assemblies can only be soaked one end at a time. Removes cosmoline, dirt, and oil
