Solvent for washing carbs and things

PostPost by: Tim Dafforn » Thu Jan 13, 2005 1:59 pm

Hi Guys,
I am in the middle of winter layup maintainance, and have got the
Dellortos off for a refurb..
Is it advisable to dump them into some kind of cleaner once they have
been stripped, or is this just a recipe for clogging the passages with
free'd up debris?
If it is advisable what solvents do you use? Petrol, white spirit,
cellulose thinners, isopropanol, methanol, ethanol?
thanks for any help
