Home Brewed Carb Cleaning

Hi all ! Im here to let you all in on a family secret for carb cleaning.
about 2 months ago i went to see my old man (he is a retired mechnic and worked at ryder truck for 35 years..he knows his sh*t) He was out in the garage working on a lawn mower carb. I sat down talking to him and watched him take out a cooking stove,a old sause pan and pour 2 qts of lemmon juice,i asked what he was doing.He said he was going to clean the carb! So i watched him light the stove and put the sause pan full of lemmon juice on it. Then he took the carb apart . When it got to a boil he droped the body of the carb,the bowl,the jetts and the screws in .(YOU DONT WANT TO PUT THE FLOTE OR ANY RUBBER O RINGS IN ECT ECT ECT) but the plastic parts are ok .He cooked it for 30 mins and pulled the parts out and washed them with water and blew them off with compresed air untill dry.From what he says the acid in the lemmon juice and the heat break down all the crap in the little pasagesse that you cant see. i have done this 5 times and i have to say that IT WORKS AWSOME!
A few tips do it outside it realy stinks,use a old pan (when you see the crap that comes out you wont want to eat food out of it again)
i know that i will catch some crap from people but all i can say it works
RICH

just look at all the black stuff that came out only after 10 mins

Did this back when I used to drag race to a QJet carb I was rebuilding. It came out looking brand new. Also used it to clean lawn mower carbs. It works great!
