X2 on that. Gumout or a $6.49 can of SeaFoam would be my choice.Fine for those too poor to spring for the extra buck and a half a can of Gumout costs over the price of a bottle of vinegar.
I try also to avoid getting water in my carbs... Bikes have tiny jets and Cre
crevices it likes to hide in.
Vinegar is basically accedic (sp?) acid... Which oxidizes aluminum.
So..... I vote not to use it.
Not a clue there..... Never used either... Just Gumout and maybe a mason jar to soak small parts overnight.Was just curious as to the effectiveness of this versus the carb-soaking "paint can" stuff you can get that comes with the strainer.
Qweesy, Why did you give out that information? Now all the supermarkets will be running out of lemon juice and I won't be able to make lemonade this summer. Thanks alot. LOL :doh:I bought 5 quarts of Lemon Juice and boiled all the carb parts...... I should have taken before and after pics....... just amazing and all the brown and black gunk floats to the top :smiley_th boiled for about 20 minutes then rinsed off in a cool water mixed with baking soda....( to stop the acid process)
I used some berrymans carb cleaner to give it a quick clean before the boil but I think the lemon juice method did a better job.
