    actually, using a spray bottle full of water is alot easier, and won't be 
as potentially messy and damaging if you "accidently" pour too much. I've 
sprayed water down the carb, it's alot easier than pouring it and gets to the 
cylinders much quicker, as it's already airborne particulates of water. Just 
set the bottle for spray or mist, and keep pumping slowly, making sure the 
engine doesn't die from over-spraying. If your engine is carboned up badly, 
however, you could knock loose big fragments, and have them bounce around 
inside the cylinder. But it's worth a shot ( or spray ).
