    I'm done paying $70/hr shop rate ( 1 hr minimum) to have someone clean the carbs on my stuff. Anyone do this them selfs, I've taken plenty apart and cleaned out some of it but I know there are tools you need to clean certain ports etc. Can I buy a small engine kit somewhere. Any advice will h:usflag:elp.

    Are you talking about 2cycle or 4cycle carbs?

    2 cycle...I've noticed that they need to be cleaned more since the new gas came out 4-5 yrs ago

    Walbro and Zama both have tool kits for their carbs that come with everything needed to rebuild, you will also need a carb pressure tester to make sure your needle and seat are not leaking.

    These are good prices for this tool set and many other good small engine tools available on this site :)
