I know a lot of guys use denatured alcohol. Myself, I like to use brake, or carb cleaner, as the aerosol cans are great for blasting out dirt, gunk, etc... Then a drop of 3-in-1 lube, and put it back together.

use NITRO cleaner, spray it through the carb and the glow plug hole, it'll flush everything out out. the lube the crank and a few drops on top of the piston with after run oil. also remove the back plate and lube the bearings.
just a tip, lean out your bottom end just a little bit.
