ARE YOU ASKING ME IF I CLEANED THE CARB BY A FREQUENCYS OF MECHANICAL VIBRATIONS, NO I DID'T, I CLEANED IT BY HAND USING B-12 CHEMTOOL CARBURETOR CHOKE AND THROTTLE BODYCLEANER, NO BOWLOUT WAS USED AND.BEFORE I TOOK IT APART IT WAS DOING THE SAME THING,WHAT I DID, DID'T CHANGE THE RUNING OF IT. AS I SAID,I HAVE TO PRIME IT BEFORE IT WILL START AND TO STAY RUNNING HIGH RPM'S

(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Provide Diagrams, Manuals, or Instructions. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 3 years ago
These carbs really can't be cleaned by hand, the passageways are to small. Because of that the proper way clean them, and how Honda specifies you do it, is to remove all of the jets and mixture screws. And then put the carb body in an ultrasonic machine (heated preferably) for 1/2 hour or so. And then blow it all out with compressed air. That is the only way to get the internal passageways clean. Does that make sense?

I was hoping you would reply back but it looks like you read my response and logged off. Does that all make sense to you, that the carb has to be cleaned ultrasonically? Also, did you have any further questions on this?
