Carb Cleaning Tip

Postby Stanton » Thu Apr 25, 2019 7:28 am

Have wanted to get an ultrasonic cleaner at some point, but don't want to waste $$ on the HF version (bad reviews about leaking). So, decided the next best thing to try on a shoe-string budget was a roaster and some solvent. :)

Went down to the local Goodwill store and bought a roaster that had a temp setting of over 400 degrees F on the dial. Cost was about $7. Didn't buy a crock pot for two reasons: 1) too slow to heat up, and 2) doesn't get hot enough. Stopped off at Wally World and bought a gallon of Simple Green (industrial or commercial, can't recall), but it's not GREEN--it's PURPLE. Whatever.

Roaster.


Used mixture of 50/50 Simple Green and water, enough to completely cover the carb. Preheated the liquid to "steamy" hot; helps to keep the lid on.

Cooking the carb.


Let it "cook" for 30 minutes or so--about the same time I'd leave it in a gallon of Berryman's Carb Cleaner.

Supper's ready!


Came out clean as a whistle. Used compressed air and a can of carb cleaner to spray any nooks or crannies and to blow out passages. This particular carb is from a 782 Cub Cadet with a Kohler K17 engine, but it would be the same on any Cub carb.

As for the ultra sonic cleaner with it's vibrating action? Not once did I have the urge to shake the roaster during soaking. :)

Hope this helps.

Thanks Stanton. This is now copied into the How To forum.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Yes Bill, Get those carburetors cooking. It takes a while to make them tender so they will melt in your mouth.

Rosie's meals at the Bash always have a lot of carbs, but there are very few leftovers when Saturday rolls around.

I was just wondering how the turkey is gonna taste. Hahahaaa.

I stole my wife's spice/coffee grinder many years ago to use for shredding yarn for fly tying. I never lived that down. She sometimes still gives me that look.

Heck it was just sitting on the shelf and she hardly ever used it.
