In addition to the solvent bath and compressed air; nothing can get a component as clean and free of debry as an ultrasonic parts cleaner. We used them at work (before I retired) in the engine shop to clean GG rotors, fuel injectors, combustor chamber burner cans, and pretty much anything that needed to be cleaned on turbine engines. You may be able to find a shop locally that has one and you can take it there to be cleaned after you soak it in the solvent bath. Ultrasonic cleaners are particularly good at loosening and cleaning minute bits or debry from small passages and surfaces. Ideal for brings an old carb back to new condition. Below is an example:

Well, just as a update. I got a kit, and tore it apart. Well, as luck would have it, half of the flote was full, so I had to get a new one. Also about 1/4 of crud in the flote bowl, so I gave it a real good cleaning. Well, after I was REAL sick for about a week, and now my little girl has a cold agean,[and her last canine tooth coming in] I have been to busy to do any more. Hoping to get it done this weekend.
