Ultrasonic you can not use anything flammable. Water base cleaner only. May not want anything that can rust inside lifter? Clean mineral spirits in a container may be all you need.

I use Simple Green and filtered water, 20:1 concentration, in my ultrasonic for most not too dirty engine parts and carbs. Nice because it will not harm the carb decals some custom builders use on bowls.

I use a small glass bowl of solvent (from the parts washer) set in a water bath in the ultrasonic cleaner. Let it get up to about 120* and do them one pair at a time. I've never done hydraulics but it works well on solids.
