I like Seafoam for running through the carb to clean out the gum. It's what we used when working on vintage motorcycles.

The most useful thing I've ever found for working on small carburetors is a white dish pan.  Brand of carb cleaner probably doesn't matter much.

Having several types on hand doesnít hurt either. I like the gallon bucket of carb cleaner they sell with plastic basket that comes with it for a good long soak. Especially when thereís a lot varnish build up. Remove all rubber parts first.

The best carb cleaner is a rebuild kit .The components get stiff and perhaps a good cleaning might seem to be in line but  not installing a new kit usually doesn't work out best .

Historically I like to dip them in chem dip, neutralize, blow out the circuits and than put a kit in. Itís always served me well. B12 works well too, but I find itís not as good as dipping with really dirty carbs. Recently I bought two ultrasonics. Iíve been very impressed by their cleaning abilities. Iíve got an old Walbro Iím gonna toss in it. Iíve read from some that ultrasonic can damage the check valve in them, others say not. This carb could easily be considered a toss away, so Iíll try it and see.

I agree. just have to know how to put it back together! :D  I am sure you do @PASS_AUF   I have the dip as well, and I think it is B12 brand, but it is nasty (good) stuff.  I use the spray for a quick fix as well.
