    My 2002 merc is getting dirty and attracting dirt in the swivel bracket/main grease joint/tilt ratchet area.

    What is the best way to 'spray clean' this area? Engine degreaser? CLR? WD-40 and a hose?

    I can't really scrub it because nothing is small enough to get in there besides a toothbrush...

    The old grease actually turns really hard over time
