I’ll give aluminum wheel cleaner a shot. Was thing tho, Brillo pads w steel wool might knock some stuff loose.
They are not bad, just a few stubborn spots. Thanks

Zep 505 makes a good degreaser.

Re: Brillo pads best for cleaning TPI outer surfaces? Plenum and runners off car

Take it to any shop with a real heated water based detergent parts washer and ask them to throw it in with their next regular load. I usually charge like $20 for this. You'll never get it cleaner yourself no matter what you use. And you can go do something more useful with your time.

Seriously cleaning parts sucks and is for suckers. About a year after I got my first real parts washer I was already shopping for a larger one. Its such a manpower multiplier and time saver it's honestly one if my most valued tools
