You put this stuff inside your carb?

How do you get the glitter out of the jets and ports ?
You just know they're gonna end up there.....

I get the distinct feeling that most of the people using this site have no idea what the inside of a Snap-On truck looks like!

Much less what the inside of a carb looks like.

Nope, Not a exception..... Been clean'n that way for over 20 yrs, Don't have time to wait on potions. I NEVER re-assemble ANY carb without spraying through each and every port/passage, I want to SEE that each is FULLY open.

Time is money so Git-r-done and move on to the next....

TOOLS DON'T COST MONEY.....THEY MAKE MONEY....

I'd rather spend my money on something that will actually fix something,
than on ....................................SNAKE OIL...................

Its just a matter of time until some wanna be mechanic shows up to apply for a job carrying a roll of tape, a bit of wire, and a case of snake oil.
I've been working in central fla for many,many years and can count ALL the competant mechanics I've met on 1 hand.

I'll have to admit.....it felt pretty good being a BIG FISH" in a small pond., the day I closed the shop , and the jobs came looking for me.
Never forget.....You're only as good as your last repair.

Okay I am taking it up another level. I got my pail of mechanic in a bottle and the ultrasonic cleaner w/heater. Now what kind of temp should I raise this to and how long to run? I had cleaned this carb up and thought it was perfectly clean. It didn't take the ultrasonic to find some stuff it streamed to the surface.....dark oily stuff.
