I only do clocks so my technique is to put each train of gears into a separate baggie, same with the levers on the front, and the chime/time hammer assemblies. Then I put the bags into my ultrasonic. After the wash, I rinse the parts while their still in the bags. Drying depends on the part, but usually a blot with paper towels and then air dry. For the parts that get water inside them, I use a paint stripping heat gun and adjust the distance to the parts as necessary.
When the parts are clean and dry, they go back into fresh bags to keep them separated until its time to put in those specific pieces.
