I used to be a mechanic and can remove the carb but don't have ultrasonic tank. Can I do this myself?
Without an ultrasonic machine, not likely. Honda specificially states, and I quote "
Use an ultrasonic jewelry/parts cleaning tank. This is the best way to clean a carburetor because this
process removes deposits even in inaccessible internal passages and it will not harm any carburetor parts
or your skin. Refer to the Honda Marine Tool and Equipment Program Catalog for details."
That being said I don't bother clean these by hand, there is almost no point to. The odds are against me that it wouldn't be clean enough to get it to run correctly afterwards.
Really? That's it? That's all you got?
Well no, not really. But we are not having a face to face or over the phone conversation, so I don't know what it is you want to know. If there is something you want to know, please just ask.
