Can you soak a carburetor in SeaFoam?
Then, what is the best thing to soak a carburetor in?
muriatic acid.. a little bit in a gallon of water will go a long ways. if you don't want to use that, then find some good drain cleaner that has hydrochloric acid in it and soak it in that for a little while.
Subsequently, question is, can you put seafoam in a 2 stroke outboard? Re: A must read for all 2 stroke outboard owners. Engines run terrible under load with that much Seafoam. It's just supposed to be a shock treatment to remove carbon. It works best when you spray it directly into you carbs until the engine stalls. Then you let it sit for a while and start it up on regular fuel.
People also ask, can seafoam unclog Jets?
Yes, I have used Seafoam (in my Polaris Ranger to clean the injectors, and in other small engines to clean out the varnish) and it works as well as any of the carb cleaners. It seems to work best if you catch the problem early; else you will need to remove and clean manually. Yes on the Seafoam.
Will seafoam clean a dirty carburetor?
You have to tear the carbs down, clean them and then use seafoam to keep them running nice. It won't clean a gummed up carb all that well like a can of carb cleaner does. But it perks the startup and keeps them clean, once cleaned. Think of seafoam as preventive maintenance.
