Got this given to me yesterday. Not sure how good it still is. Figure I can buy a new can and swap that in. Use the old stuff for  pre-dip on really nasty things.

Came with 2 baskets.

Here's the first test specimen. It's the original carb off the Jake K321S. It's rather crusty. I will have to get a kit for this #30 carb.DSCN0196.JPG     DSCN0197.JPG

 

I'll have pics of the finished product today.

That would be pretty handy to have around. The price was right as well!

I had one for years and it was great for cleaning carbs. Do not handle that unless you are wearing gloves. It caused my hands to peel. Avoid breathing the fumes too. I had to add water to the top layer every so often to keep the seal. It should make life a little easier. Good Luck, Rick

A lot better than using a minnow bucket. I like the double basket, nice.

I wonder how much crud may be in the bottom of the bucket? LOL May have to check that out! I can get some new juice for it at Atwoods down the street.

I'll be interested in seeing how that carb comes out.  Can't complain about the price.

Here's the carb. Not totally spotless and new looking, but a lot better than it was. I stuck it back together for now so nothing would get lost.

Had another friend drop these off last night. They came off his Tacoma PU. Just the right size to fit the Dodge.

Last year I bought a gallon bucket of carb cleaner with basket from NAPA.

It worked pretty good!

Tthe really powerful stuff from 40 years ago is probably outlawed by EPA now!

Seems like any of the "old stuff" that really worked has been new and improved to death. I've always enjoyed cleaning up parts and making them useful again. Must be the Dutch in me, lol.

Looks like the carb came out pretty good.  How long did you leave it in there?
