Rebuilding Walbro WY Series Carb

I am in the process of rebuilding the Carb on a Redmax Trimmer. The Carb is a Walbro WY series and seems to be made of a bakelite type of material. Can I soak this carb like I do with the other Walbro carbs in carb cleaner solvent or will this damage the carb assembly? In the Walbro book, it does not list any soaking procedures. On the other carbs, I usually soak them for 20 minutes and blow them out with air.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The Bakelite substance I am referring to is like the plastic type of material used in electrical socket in which light bulbs are screwed into. I believe it is some type of plastic. Anyway, it looks like the carb is made of a hard plastic substance. I hope this helps.

you can soak it in carb cleaner without it attacking the plastic.
