Soaking the carburator in pinesol /Water solution for a day or so removes the tarnish(may need a bit of brushing with an old tooth brush) and cleans internals very well. I found I only needed to use a wire to clean calcium/lime deposits from the jets. How the fuel gets calcium/lime to plug jets in it is beyond me?
Soda Blasting is also a good choice as Bruce mentioned. . If you do a google search there are instructions for making a homemade blaster on the net.
In fact here is a link I'm also going to post it in the mechaics section in case someone misses this post.. http://www.aircooled...p/soda_blaster/

We are seeing more and more of this as ethanol amounts increase n gasoline.
Once again, it is more important than ever to keep your small engine fuels treated with a product such as Sta-Bil
