Carburetor Cleaning

a warning

Some carburetor cleaning chemicals, especially dip-type soaking solutions, are very corrosive and must be handled carefully. Always follow the chemical manufacturer's instructions on proper use, handling and storage.

• Clean all jets with a spray-type carburetor cleaner and dry them using compressed air.

• Clean all circuits of the carburetor thoroughly - not just the perceived problem area. Clean the circuits in the carburetor body with a spray-type cleaner and allow each circuit to soak, if necessary, to loosen dirt and varnish. Blow the body dry using compressed air.


Do not use a wire to clean the jets or passageways. A wire can damage the jets and passageways. If the components cannot be cleaned with a spray cleaner it may be necessary to use a dip-type cleaning solution and allow them to soak. Always follow the chemical manufacturer's instructions for proper use and cleaning of the carburetor components.

• After cleaning, reassemble the carburetor with new seals and gaskets.
