Have you tried Kroil/Arokroil?  Or automatic transmission
fluid and acetone?

I acquired a monster chain-type come-a-long and am currently
soaking the chain in a (covered) bucket of ATF and acetone.
We'll see...  It took most of a gallon of used ATF to cover
the chain.  I put a bit less than 2 cups of acetone.  Maybe
not enough - but I'm cheap!
