How to Refurb Governor Without Removing It?

hi i have a ford 2701e dorset 4 pot diesel, the governor is malfunctioning after a 2 year layup. i do not wish to remove it as i gather this means i wd have to reset timing etc. i guess there is dried oily goo on the moving parts in the governor, i have heated the oil in its sump, and used a thinner grade, with some/partial success. but i want to CLEAN IT. would an oil additive work? or should i drain oil out and spray in oven/bbq cleaner or something, rinse out, and re oil? any thoughts welcome
