Slime in Carbs/Fuel diaphram?/Gaskets
I pulled the carbs off the parts bike to clean them. (I'm also rejetting.)
I found rust colored slime in the carbs and they're gunked up pretty good.
Some of the deposits are white and chalky, some are rusty and slimy. The carb cleaner I have works well on the rusty slimy varnish, but not so much on the white chalky stuff.
Any suggestions on how to get that white stuff off?
Also, it looks like my rubber diaphrams (not the vac diaphrams, but the ones on the sides of the carbs) are super soft, almost spongy.
Anyone have any experience with these things? Should I replace them? What do they do?
Lastly, since I'm trying to do this on the cheap, can I use some blue RTV silicone to help out my generally flat O-rings on the carb bowl?
