Cleaning Carburettor

I just pulled the Carburettor apart on my little Mv to see what parts I need to order and it could do with a clean also.
What's the best product to use to clean it including the brass parts?

An ultra sonic cleaner is the best way to go.....same equipment used to clean glasses or jewelry. Ask about, someone may have one. Small ones are inexpensive. For your little carb you don't need a big expensive industrial size.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

This is the one I've got

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-5L-Profe...item2a309cb9e6

I can fit a 40mm Dellorto of my Darmah in it , but a 10L would be better but as I was limited with funds at the time I make do.

Thanks for the information, what solution do you use to clean it with?
I just ordered a 10L one off eBay. I ordered manual dials as one less thing to go wrong. Hopefully it last awhile and works well. As the good ones made here are $1700 this was only $400. I think for the amount of times I'll use it it will be ok
