I was wondering about the effects on the varnish, too.
I know there are electric motor repair shops around Houston (and other
cities, I'm sure--just drier than Houston's). They must have ways to clean
the motor windings without affecting the insulation. Check around your area
and see. If they can do it, I'd jump for it...that way, I wouldn't have to
fool with the Tri-chlor or any other solvents.
