I went through the same issue, but I sent mine out for acid dip and galvanizing before it went to paint. Maybe a little overkill, but well worth the piece of mind. Cost me a couple hundred bucks through the company I work for, but that frame was perfect when I got it back! Never had any problems with the paint after that. My contact is in upper Wisconsin and his work is the best. Just a thought. Good luck with your build and don't get so discouraged, everything can be fixed!

brakekleen works fine on gettin all the shit off the frame. Doesn't take much just spray it on cloth and rub fast. Done in five minutes.

I second that... Cheap enough that you can go over it a few times so you can rest easy.

I'd probably hose it with a brakleen a few times but even go one further step and pick up some PPG wax and grease remover for a good wipe down before priming. If you do any paintwork... it's a basic staple in the shop. DX330 or DX440. The key to that stuff is wipe on... and wipe off. It only raises the contaminents. Most will tranfer to your rag but you'll want to wipe clean with a fresh rag before it dries. Brakleen first due to cost... then followup with the PPG product.
I've got a leaky mockup motor and trans in my frame now and there's oil on the tubes. Doesn't worry me too much.

Oil can be cleaned. Most parts that are stamped or turned are oiled to ease the process. But, I think WD40 has silicone in it which will kill any paint process in the future. I know of cases where WD40 was just sprayed in the vacinity of paint and it still caused all sorts of problems. DO NOT USE WD40 ON PARTS PRIOR TO PAINT.
