Hi Y'all! Fine I hope. It is going to be another hot day (98*) here in s.e. Tx.. A
good time to be inside. I have been repairing & cleaning small engines for many
years. The problem now is the additives to our gas at the pumps. This has caused a person to be careful with parts cleaning with more & more plastic
being used on carbs. In the past you could remove the gaskets,needle valve & seat on a carb. then soak it a few hours. I still have a gallon of cleaner
(Berryman/Chem-Dip/carb. parts cleaner) that I use. I am afraid to dip the carb.. Will it damige the plastic parts on top of carb. or shoud I go to another
way to clean?


THANKS, willie

You can dip the carburetor if it's dirty enough to need it. Just remove the plastic parts first and you should be fine.

I used to use a dip for cleaning and when there was plastic, I submerged up to the plastic on the top. I clean with carb spray all the time now and finish with air hose, on the exterior. I never use the air hose directly into the carb.
