    Seafoam is a good fuel system cleaner that doesn't harm the seals and gaskets. It wipes out crap in the carb and in your fuel lines pretty good, however if your carb is already stopped up it will not help any.

    SeaFoam is the best product for cleaning carbs and can be used in the crankcase also. This is the only product available that works equally well in both gasoline and diesel engines. It will keep #2 diesel from jelling and will clean fuel injectors.

    If a carb passage is not completely blocked it will open it up completely. You can run an engine on SeaFoam and completely clean the injection pump and injectors.

    Pour SeaFoam directly into the carb (4 cycle) with the engine running at a fast idle and warmed up. Pour until the engine dies, wait at least half an hour, restart the engine and in just a few minutes all carbon deposits will be gone. Do this outside. If you ever use a lot of SeaFoam in a running engine in an enclosed area you will have an unforgettable experience.
