I'm pretty sure my C's carb is dirty because it coughs and dies in high gear...barely runs in 1st. I know I should take the carb off and clean it but is there a "quick fix"...like a cleaner I can spray or put into the gas tank to get some temporary relief? I'm actualy a little nervous about messing with the carborator.

We rebuild the Zenith and Marvel carbs if the additive doesn't do the job. These carbs get plugged with rust and gunk over the years, and usually an additive won't clean out a plugged fuel passage. The proper way is to disassemble, tank, and glassbead the carb in and out to get all fuel metering passages open and operating again. Floats inspected and set etc. Drop us a line if interested. Be happy to help ya out...

Ron, I like B-12 Chemtool myself. You can buy a can to pour in the gas tank and in a spray can. Take the air cleaner hose loose from the carb and with engine running spray in the carb. You may have more than just a stopped up carb . If you have a fuel filter change it. Pull the glass fuel bowl and clean it. Then check in the tank and make sure there is no crud stoppin up the hole to the fuel line.
