soaking a carb?
My BIL bought an old 1981 Honda 400 to use for scooting around town and for a first bike for my niece. Doesn't run so today we are pulling plugs, doing a compression test, dumping the old gas, pulling the carbs for cleaning. They will need to be disassembled and cleaned so I wanted to know whats the best stuff to use for soaking the carbs?
We don't want something that will damage any parts of the carbs. He was told the bike had carb issues but I suspect it's simply from not being used for so long. I imagine they are all gunked up.
I told him to order carb kits since we are tearing 'em down ... might as well put 'em back together with new stuff in 'em.
Any input for the best carb cleaner is appreciated.
