Carb dip for fcr’s

Recommended Posts

What’s recommended for soaking an fcr body in?

I’ve got two weeks before I receive the parts to rebuild an fcr mx I bought used so I thought I might as well soak it while I’m waiting. Any point in removing the four screws connecting the lower half of the carb body and splitting it? Looking at the breakdown it’s shown as one piece and there is “tamper paint” in the screw heads.

Do not split it.

Some have done this with mixed results, being a successful reassembly into a functioning carb, other have two carb halves.

Eddie would have to tell you what he rec's for soaking it in. I would not use 'Carb Cleaner' as it is too caustic.

Sure glad I asked… My inquisitive nature wanted to dissect it completely then soak it in carb dip. I guess I’ll just use a little gas and compressed air. Replace the diaphragms,

o-rings float needle and vacuum plate seal, re-jet and see what happens.
