If anyone is interested, I couldn't get them all the way apart. I ended up punching them with a shotgun cleaning rod, nylon brush, and some bore cleaner to try to break up all the old grease that turned to wax.

Lots of crud, followed by some dish washing soap and hot water in the tub. From there, douched with gasoline and finally alcohol.

I also soaked the bottom caps in ATF to see is the seals would swell enough to provide some kind of seal. We'll see, some grease still slipping through. I'm not going to ride in the rain so it'll probably work for the time being.
