    Should be okay, but I would'nt just pour it in. You can get some very long cotton buds, which is what I used to use for this job, soaked in petrol. If its caked on then try dunking the brush in the carb cleaner to loosen off the crap, but I would'nt get flooding it with the stuff too much.

    A regular wipe afterwards will keep it looking decent, though obviously if oil is coming up the guides quite a bit it's a indication some wear is present.
