Re: So why so little interest?

The antique gas engine and tractor markets have been sagging also for the last few years.
There was a post on another site a day or two ago asking the same question.
Not just this year but it sure doesn't help.

Re: Ultrasonic cleaning solution

Have a bottle from a friend's estate. Harbor Freight, US made, ultrasonic general purpose cleaning powder.
Might color-stain aluminum and magnesium parts. No hint of what's inside tho.
Some folks use vinegar I believe.
