Has anybody ever tried a product by PB called LMT= Lawn Mower Tuneup? I bought a couple cans at TSC the other day. It was on the sale rack so I thought what the heck. I have yet to try it out yet. Directions say to spray it in the carb of the problem machine for 5 seconds while it is running. I assume it must work like Seafoam .

Kelly, I use PB Blaster a lot, but haven't seen the LMT as yet! Got the other thread deleted for you.

I,ve never used any of those products. I'm thinking of starting to use seafoam as a preventive against carbon buildup.

Never on a small engine, but I did use it on my 75 Dodge in 98. It was a pour container that you dumped in, if I remember correctly.
The stuff that came out of the muffler was, well, NASSSTY. Probably took a year for the rain to wash it off the building where it splattered.

I've used PB Blaster and have had quite goo results but not the carb cleaner. I just use regular carb cleaner. Let us know how well it works.

It's not a traditional spray carb cleaner. It's more of a combustion chamber cleaner. You spray it in the spark plug hole and let it soak then spray more in the carb inlet while it's running.
I tried it once and it must have removed some carbon buildup because it was pretty evident in the exhaust. Two words of caution though, the amount of smoke this causes will be enough for your neighbors to think your house is burning down :smilewink: and two, make sure to replace the spark plug or plugs immediately after this.

Yes that is what I gathered from the instructions. It also states you can take out the plug/plugs out in the fall and spray a good amount in the combustion chamber, rotate the engine a couple times and reinstall the plugs and let it set for the winter. I fogged down my 1641 Cub with it and she smoked like a house a fire for about 5 minutes or so. The little nuisance skip the engine had appears to be gone. No way to check it under load because I keep the snow thrower on it all year. Remember this is Central New York ya know. LOL
