You can spray brake cleaner on the spark arrestor screen, or better yet, hit it with a propane torch until it glows dull red. All the carbon will be gone.

I'll go you better than that. I bought a 44 on eBay last year just to get the engine for my FS56 (20+ year old curved shaft) which I have always loved.
I keep it going for myself while buying other new models for my crew.
