I would strongly recommend taking it apart... there isn't any way to be sure you got it all out if you don't.

when you put it together, tighten all the bolts to the right torque and put good gasket maker on it

Before you take it apart I recommend you watch FearlessFront's video on YouTube on how to lock a transaxle. You don't need to lock it if you don't want too, but it has pointers on how to take apart and put back together a transaxle.

Yep- tear it down. Sounds like a great time for some maintenance, too. Clean all the old grease out of there and regrease everything. No not use solvent to clean the bronze bushings, just a rag. If you have a few bucks to spare, new bushings would be a great idea. If it's a Peerless, inspect the shift keys while you're there, and as a general statement, inspect all parts.

When disassembling, don't leave the pulley on and get all Rambo trying to force the case halves apart. Quite often, there's a bolt hiding under it.
