Home brewed Seafoam
Guy on another forum came up with this.
"The ingredients for Seafoam are naphtha (aka white gas, coleman fuel, lighter fluid), isopropanol (aka isopropol alcohol), and pale oil (light oil). For alcohol I use the 91% stuff sold in drug stores. For oil I use Dexron ATF. Usually mix it about 1 qt Coleman fuel, 1 pint alcohol, 1/2 pint ATF. Seems to work just as good as the store bought stuff."
Be aware that most isopropanol (rubbing alcohol) in stores is about 70% alcohol and 30% water, so be sure to get the higher concentration of alcohol. I'm not having any carb problems, so don't have a good way to test this out. But think I'll try mixing up a batch when my current supply of Seafoam runs out.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
