Carbs cleaning in ultra sonic bath...
« on: September 23, 2018, 11:47:22 AM »
Guy's, when putting the carbs into a ultra sonic bath, what liquid is recommended to use? Is it only water or adding any "special" thing to get it cleaned without destroying the outer ali surface...

I used something like this seemed to work well to me, although I believe some use just some washing up liquid.

have not compared one against the other so cant say if the washing up liquid works as well, maybe someone else can advise.

I use exactly the same for my carbs,diluted with de-ionised water,also known as distilled water and get good results every time.

I find the hotter the water the better the result using a squirt of washing up liquid as well.
Brass parts come up very clean if you use 50/50 hot water and lemon juice (5 min sessions )
But will need polishing after. Does a nice job on the jis screws as well.

I use hot water and some washing up liquid, then dry the carbs off and spray them with WD40 and wipe dry again.

 EM-080, EM-404 work perfect for me.
