What is a good and easily available solution to dissolve oil? I want to clean the oil passages, i have a round wire brush for pipes, but in the end I want to wipe the passages clean with small pieces of cloth soaked in something that will leave everything clean.

NEVER use cloth. Always paper towels. A small piece of cloth frayed or lost will wreck oil passages. Many an engine has died this way.

Normal kerosene parts washer solvent with a detergent additive.....and a quick rinse with a spray can of something hotter like a carb cleaner.....and then compressed air. Ray

Paper shreds easier than most types of cloth.

I would actually suggest keeping any scrubbing to the nylon brushes and compressed air with kerosene based cleaning solvent mix as suggested.

I kept looking for wire brushes for pipe interior and they were always too short and too large in diameter. So today I was looking through some other topics, and saw a cleaning kit with several brushes and I realized: they are weapons cleaning kits. Easy to find also here, at almost any sports shop. And the kit has a wire brush, a nylon brush and a wool brush. Easy task to clean now.

6mm and 9mm gun cleaning kit. Very nice, they have wire brush, nylon brush and wool brush. So I have everything to clean properly. 10 bucks well spent.
