Man. Hub cleaning

hey all , I got a set of man. hubs that really need cleaning , is it okay to use brake cleaner on them, or is there something better to use. and do i have to repack them too? I'm trying to get them put on before TAKEOVER .

Cleaning with brake cleaner is fine, that is what I use for most everything and yes you will need to pack them with some grease. There are a couple rebuilds online that will help.

pack the bearings, but only a light coating on the moving parts of the hub. Always remember grease attracts dirt.
