Default Maytag model 41 washer. Beautiful original

I bought this very nice model 41 washer at the pioneer power show last spring. It is in unbelievable original condition. Serial number is 194894 which I think would make it a 1924? I am going to start refurbishing it. I plan to remove all metal parts and gently clean the surface rust and protect with something. I am thinking half mineral spirits half linseed oil. What is the best way to properly clean this washer? I want to save all original patina that can. What is the best way to do this? Thanks

I think I would clean off all the dirt and nothing more. I think people like to see as it was. my 2 cents. Arlie

Finally had a little time today to oil everything up and get this machine working. The wood is loose so I am going to eventually disassemble carefully and tighten everything up. But it works pretty well for being almost 100 years old!
