I posted yesterday about needing cleaner to soak a carb Iím working on. Went to 2 different auto parts place that are in my area and they only had Berrymans in an aerosol can. I ended up with the Napa brand ď parts cleaneríĒ. I could have done some more driving around to find some of the other suggestions you guys made, but I got lazy and didnít feel like making a half day project out of it. Hopefully this works, if not Iíll have to try some of the other suggestions. Thank you to everyone who replied !

Berkebile 2 +2 is a very good/aggressive aerosol cleaner that I've used in the past. Available on Amazon and some auto parts stores (they may have to order it).

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI bought one of those on ebay several years ago. They are a common tool for jewelers. Maybe around $35. Works very well with laundry detergent and water.

last carb I cleaned was on a generator that had sit so long, the gas looked like peanut butter. I used lacquer thinner, it did a great job.

Pine-Sol works good on the motorcycle and snowmobile carbs.

Try an ultra sonic cleaner if you can . I use one for my Zenith tractor carbs , it shifts deposits that nothing else will .

When I do a carb I try to spray off the out side before putting it in to soak. That way at least some of the grease etc. is off before you take it apart

This is still that Mikuni snowmobile carb Iím working on Old. Pretty outside, but the internal passages are still plugged. Still canít blow through the gas inlet even with it completely disassembled ! I need to get it running and out the door this week as Iím headed to Texas next week for work training.

Use the gas welder tip cleaners to get through the stuck passages.

The worst blocked off passage is the gas inlet to the needle and seat. I tried my tip cleaners, but they are too short and wouldnít reach all the way. I am currently looking for something small yet flexible enough to reach the whole way.

The aircraft drill bits that many carb vendors sell are 6" long. Should work for you.

Looks a lot like some of the motorcycle carbs I have worked on over the years and if it is a 2 stroke they do tend to clog up easier then 4 strokes do

Probably very similar to a motorcycle carb. It is 2 stroke but has oil injection so carb only sees normal gas . Not a mix. Bought gasket and new pilot jet. The rest is pretty straight forward .

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
