Wanted to check with the experts on best way to clean old dirty carburetors. I have cleaned them in a solvent tank, that didn't do much. I have a small tank bucket with carb cleaning solution I thought I would try that next. Wondering what the restorers do to make them look as new ?

I used soda blasting (baking soda) and it made my carbs look like new. If you have a blast cabinet and use abrasive media, make sure it’s ALL vacuumed out. Wash with soap and water and dry immediately.

Gumout is the best carburetor cleaner for those in a hurry. If you need to dislodge gunk and don't have time to take apart your carburetor to let it soak for a day, use an aerosol cleaner
