Most autoparts stores sell non aerosol carb cleaner in gallon cans.......Got a NAPA near you?
That's what I bought a year ago to fix a mower. Comes with a basket to hold the parts. Possibly the best $20 I've ever spent. Since then I've used it to fix a miata, 3 push mowers, 2 weed eaters, 2 leaf blowers, and a pocket bike. :cool:


Although after reading this thread, I will be looking for a gallon of cat ****.

im going into STL today and hope to be leaving with one. that depends if a couple transactions i planned out go through.

wait, plastic you say? so will plastic hold up to most of these chemicles?

just wondering because i have an extra wet saw pump and a 55 gal. plastic drum/barrel and if you think it would work in the solution id probably make one with what i got handy. just wasnt sure if plastic would hold up???
