A manual for disassembly and reassembly. The best methods to clean are soda blast or sonic cleaner. They can be cleaned without those by gentle scraping and solvent. You want to preserve the coating on the valve parts and not scratch it up.

Can I use carb cleaner or degreaser? Brand is supercheap auto. I live in Australia. Scrub everything with a toothbrush, rinse with water, and reassemble?

Carb cleaner will work. You don't want to use anything that will damage aluminum. That goes for solvent and scrubbing tools.
