Pine-Sol also works as an insect killer

Don't recall what caused me to try it but sprayed a bunch of box-elder bugs (fuck bugs) with pine oil from a garden sprayer and they all died pretty quickly.

So "PSS" must stand for "Pine Sol Sprayer"?

Hi i am doing the pinesol degreaser right now and pulling them out this evening, i am assuming i just rinse with water? and how thorough? I plan to hang all the parts from the roof of the shed with tie-wire to dry thoroughly. any suggestions other to this?

Box-elder bugs, huh? Those must be what we called "telephone bugs" back
in Texas, 'cause they said "hello and hung up!". The things we remember
from our youth.

Anyway, I cleaned a couple of carbs with Pine-Sol in my sonicator and
they came out great. The only downside, if in fact it can be attributed
to the Pine-Sol, was that the carbs got a layer of corrosion (much like
flash-rust) almost immediately.

You have a pic of that result?

Hope I don't (end up being able to take one'a my own!).

I soaked an old KZ550 front master cylinder in some and it cleaned it out real well - even the "captured" sight glass area. Downside - it also loosened most of the exterior paint and the steel bore developed flash rust after rinsing/drying (just gave it a temporary coating of oil).

I just finished cleaning two 20 mm Kehin carbs with Pinesol and I had the same result, the Pinesol cleaned the grease and the dried-out gas enamel gunk and did not harm the rubber parts, but completely tarnished the brass pieces and the aluminum of the carbs. It was also very harsh on my hands, dried them right out.

The gas cap vent on my Tengai was getting clogged and would cause fuel starvation when running at highway speeds for extended periods. Took it off and soaked it for a couple of days in Pine Sol, problem solved.

Sorry canyncarvr, no photos, but my results were like MarcoPolo's above.
On a second note, I used the Pine-Sol soak to remove the gas/varnish from
a TLR200 tank, rinsed/flushed with water, purged with steel mix (argon/CO2)
and silver soldered some holes. Worked great, however, once again--flash
rusting of the interior of the tank.
In retrospect, I think I should have compressed air dried the carbs followed
immediately with some LPS1. The tank I probably should have acetone washed,
following with stoddard or gas.

Live and learn. Anyway you look at it, the Pine-Sol did clean well.

I did dry my carbs right away with compressed air, the corrosion appeared right after drying.

Well Marco, I guess what this really proves is that Pine-Sol works. It
works so well that ALL oil residue is removed and allows good old O2 to
do it's job. Oxidation. As Neil Young said, "Rust never sleeps".
