Cleaning Pt. 1

Did some initial “gunk scraping” (that’s the technical term) today and it was very satisfying.

Before:

After:

AAAaaaaahhhh. So good. Still more cleaning to do, but man that was satisfying. For those curious, I used a flat head screwdriver and a plastic paint scraper to scrape the gunk away. Still looking for recommendations on cleaning solutions to use to get the last layer off. Once I clean off the rest of the cobwebs (literally) then the real work can be done.

  1. There is a one gallon can for dipping/soaking carburetor parts– it comes with a strainer basket. Smells bad, works amazingly well. I like spray brake cleaner (though it’s highly flammable!). Some people swear by Simple Green but it’s aqueous. And, there’s always parts cleaner– a solvent used commercially.
