    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....

    I do, and I am sure glad I'm not enslaved each week to the Snap-On man anymore!

    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.
