I’m new to this and I do not know about steam cleaning parts, but I can tell you that I oil the escape wheel with the balance out and it works great for me. I REALLY like the idea of oiling the escape wheel out of the watch and I do not see why it would not work. I am going to give that a go on my next watch. I am willing to bet that it works even better as there will be no chance if missing a tooth or getting to much in the wrong place etc.
Sure, the escape wheel could tip over during reassembly, or perhaps something else touches it before I get the bridge back on etc. etc. BUT I believe it is worth trying.
