Default Engine cleaner

Will carb cleaner work fine for cleaning out my .21? I'm gonna replace the bearings anc\d wanna give the internals a flush. Any objections?

It works, but most likely will eat o-rings and some plastics, so remove the carb first. Also don't forget to relube everything really well, this stuff get almost all traces of oil out and dries very very fast so any moisture will begin attacking a lot faster than normal. Watch your eyes though, seems like everytime I use this stuff it splashes back into my face and can do bad things to an eye[8D].

I would flush my engine with some nitro and relube with some after run oil. that way you'll be sure you won't ruin your engine.
