Denatured alcohol SLX.$9 gallon at home depot.Beware as it evaporates it condenses moisture out of the air,meaning spray it on & when it evaporates it leaves water droplets so dont blow them into your bearings with an air gun. I dont clean my cars like that anymore but worked great with a $1 spray bottle when I did & cheap.

Naptha for the diffs if you like to clean those out easily too bought at the same place.

I use Methal Hydrate alcohol for the fact i can get it Dirt cheep...like water cheap and a cheepo spray bottle will hold it without failing...Naptha or Iosol will Eat away at the pump action of the spray bottle and soon fail....Ive tried chemical resistant spray bottle's but that didn't work either.

I still keep a can of "Nitro Clean" for the time's i want a little pressure behind the spray...i mostly use the alcohol for cleaning my tanks....it bring back that shiny white color like they use to be when Brand new.
