Good idea. When I take the air filter housing off to get at the second fuel filter I'm going to clean out the bowl and hose everything off with crab cleaner at least.
Then again pretty much everything is going to get attacked with some kind of stiff bristle brush and lots of compressed air soon to clean the thing up. Lots of degrease to do too where the valve cover is leaking.
All that cleaning will probably be my next task, since the engine is still all closed up so nothing can get into it.
