Cleaning oil out of turbopump V-550?

Our turbopump recently stopped working. Whenever it is turned on, at pressures that worked in the past, it makes the normal starting "jet sound", but then displays a "too high load" error message. We opened its outlet and oil started pouring out. We would like to try to clean it ourselves. I have seen others clean out oil from turbos by dipping them upside down in IPA, but I am worried our outlet may be too close to the motor. I also hear it said this may only work on certain types of bearings, but am not sure which the V-550 has.

Has anyone ever cleaned a Turbo V-550 here before?
