carburettor cleaning

Post  fc59 on Sat 25 Apr 2015, 9:18 pm

what i have learnt in the last few weeks about SU carburettors could and has filled a few books but one thing i cant find any info on is there any sort of bath or soak that i can pull them down and then soak them for a few days to clean them i have three spare SUs that are complete but putrid and a tooth brush wont get into all the small ports and chambers

i was thinking molasses but it is not alloy safe apparently

and the cans of carb cleaner i have are evaporating before they really start to clean the small blocked up chambers  

any help ?

You need a cold tank cleaner bath. Most carbie shops use them. I use to supply them. One is made by Maxwell Chemicals at Botany.
Other brands exist. Be warned it is serious stuff and based on an acid mix. The other alternative is to soda blast them.

thanks hmmm ok sounds like i would just be better to pull them down and give them to a carbie shop for cleaning and maybe recolouring i might give the mob that did my strombergs up a call i already asked them if they rebuild SUs and i got a no but they might do the cold tank cleaning for me if i do the reassembly work

i was thinking along the lines of a CLR sort of house hold product ?

If the cleaner is evaporating ,put the parts into jars with lids
then it won't evaporate and you can give it shake every so often..
