Brake parts or electrical parts cleaner

Do not spray anything into the slide area, just wipe it out if you feel compelled to do so.

You can soak jets (ONLY) in carb cleaner though if the oilot jet is clogged or varnished, just replace it. If you must poke at it, use nylon fishing line, no metal.

There are internal rubber parts and unless you are a carb pro, you can ruin the carb. Less is more.

Wow!! Would have never thought of that! Said main active ingredients are the pine oil and alcohol. What would the exhaust smell like on first start up?

It smells completely like normal exhaust lol, You have to rinse the hell out of it and I blow it out with compressed air afterwords and let it dry for a day or so.

Read that whole link.

Yeah I did read the whole link. I couldn't imagine trying to jet and tweak four carbs to get it to run nice. Working on a Holley 6 pack is bad enough
