Cleaning solvents

Yup they are very expensive but then since they are constantly recycled in the parts washer it may not be as much of an issue as is generally thought. for a homemade washer I woudl like to use 1/2 of a 55 gal drum so I can put a complete tranny or engine block on the washer. Now one will need to do a secondary cleaning before painting to make sure no solvents are left to interfere with painting. Might be best to just bite the bullet and get a replacement washer pump from your parts supplier as some of the jury rig deals wind up costing as much or more as doing it right in the first place.

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
