RE: home-brew tranny, and depotting NST's

A commons suggestion is to throw the core minus the case in five gallons of
mineral spirits and it was supposed to dissolve in three days. Well, I
soaked the thing and brushed it and soaked it and went through about 8
gallons of mineral spirts and it took 4 weeks to get it all off!!
I think if the tar is OLD it might not dissolve nearly as well as fresh tar.

>And then, while it is still warm, throw the tranny in a bucket
of kerosene to dissolve any other tar that might be on it, perhaps using an
old toothbrush and giving it a scrub now and then. Leave for maybe a day or
two, then take it out and wipe it down with a rag, and you're good!
That is the method that I use. I can guarantee effectiveness, but I
guarantee safety! Others may have to comment if my method is flawed in that
