Wiley-
Likewise, I have not ever had a Marvel/Schebler carb that couldn"t be rebuilt and perform as good as new. If passages are that plugged, you will need to disassemble the unit and soak in carb cleaner or white vinegar for a few days, or weeks, then completely clean inside and out using compressed air liberally. DO NOT try to open up the passages with a drill bit. Use a pin or something slightly smaller in diameter than the hole size. The 9N used the M/S TSX-33 carb which has different parts than the later M/S TSX-241 carb. Either one will work but the parts have to be correct. NEW carbs, I have heard have issues. Even if you need to buy a low priced used model on fleabay and then rebuild yourself (which is what I would do)you"re still ahead on both quality and money spent. It can be done for less than $100 -compared to over $200 for one of the new aftermarket Cheena toys.

My impression is that the soak may be at the root of a lot of these rebuilt-my-carb-and-still-won't-run stories, because iron bodies are very rare these days, and most parts store carburetor cleaners just aren't compounded to handle iron. Add to that the fact that most cleaners today are a shadow of their former selves. To get an MS clean you need a combination of a decent cleaner and mechanical cleaning - wire, picks and air, and to alternate between the two.

Vinegar seems to work pretty well. Anyone tried phosphoric acid or lye?

Yep, I sued 'carb cleaner' loosely. Todays products are so watered down for safety reasons I really don't muck around with them. I blend my own stuff using mineral spirits mostly. If a carb is in rough shape with rust and crud, I will soak in a bath of white vinegar for a few weeks before cleaning. I have pictures of a before and after M/S TSX33 carb that I did using vinegar and you'd be amazed at the outcome. After vinegar bath and cleaning, it gets rinsed in clean vinegar before going right into a soap and water bath to neutralize the acidity of the vinegar, then air blown dry then a bath of pure mineral spirits, air blown, then a bath of denatured alcohol to remove moisture, oily residue, and any leftover stains. Basically my method.
