parts washer

i have made one that works well i started with a center sump oil pan from a 3208cat (worked for a cat dealer for30yrs}then a fuel transfer pump driven by a small elc motor of a dish washer. the filter from a diesel engine(the primary one wich is a fine screen)so it can be washed, welded some legs on the pan and made a lid workes great. the center sump allows instalation of a heavey skreen to put stuff on above the varsol. a center sump pan of a 302 truck engine would work, but if you live near a cat dealer and smile at the servicr maneger you will likely get some freebees when he knows what you are up to ,a fuel pump off a oil furnace would work also. have fun. i also have a old dish washe in my shop for final cleaning works well, v8 heads fit. soap and hotwatter is very good for final cleaning engine or trans parts. be sure to sray lube the parts after wash as rust will develop fast. have fun cliff
