what really is the best carb cleaner???

....and I'm not talking out of a rattle-can. I've been using Chem-dip for awhile but I'm not overly happy with the results. Anyone got any suggestions? I'm talking get-down, dichromate removing stuff but not harming the carb its self. Thanks!

Re: what really is the best carb cleaner???

Degrease and clean very bit of dirt off
Disolve a couple teaspoons of Citric acid in a 1/2 cup of warm water
Was for seveal hrs or dismantle and drop all the parts in the soln for 3 or 4 hrs.
Give an occassional light scrub with one of those brass wire tooth brushes a few times
Wash off well with water, and dry.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Take it apart, clean it with lacquer thinner and re-assemble it with RUST CHECK.

I don't know, but B12 Chemtool works pretty good as a home flame thrower and shoot 'em in the air bug spray

Well, I make me laugh at least...

That is why it works so good. The inventors discovered how to reverse magnetism so that instead of 'opposites attract' they can now make 'sames attract' and your Gunk pops loose to join their Gunk and become one! Very technical and scientific so the exact formula is hidden in a vault!
