Man, whoever discovered the use of Pine Sol for cleaning varnished carbs deserves the Nobel Prize for Mechanics. I'd have sworn these parts could not be blasted apart with TNT but after soaking for several days in full-strength PS the accumulated gunk can be scraped off with a thumbnail and cemented-together parts can be persuaded to separate without too much drama. I'm amazed and, although this is taking much longer than I figured, it is more importantly going to be doable on a modest cash outlay. So far.
