Best way to clean without a compressor? Save until you can get a compressor! It is painfull otherwise. IMO

Engine and electronics out, Paint brush hard bristle type dust off as much as you can.

Shower hot very hot water, shampooo and brush again, take it out hose it down with WD40 let sit in the sun all day.

Air compressor with simple green, works great.
