A place to start...

**edit**

Found it! It was in the bottom of the PineSol tub.

Ya'll remember to take yours OUT!

________________________________

I said to myself, 'Self! Watch for those..remember to take 'em out before you pressure wash the carbs.

...I didn't listen....

Now I'm short one'a those 'thingys' that fits between the needle jet and the carb body..the nozzle.

This is for a set of VE66 Keihns..off a '86 700SC set.

Anyone happen to have a 'extra'?

My carbys are clean now...but a completely worthless pile of poop! Neat. Clean poop!

Thanks!

I am a believer in the Pine Sol bath! Been having idling issues with the XRL. Tried a number of things to no avail. Soaked the Keihin CV carb over night in Pine Sol. Took it for a test run today and there is a huge improvement. Just need to fine tune the air screw and we're good to go.

So, now the twin Mikunis from the F650 are getting the treatment. Today was laundry day so I put the bucket o'Pine Sol on top of the dryer to see if some gentle agitation will be beneficial. The jets are in a small ultrasonic cleaner filled with Pine Sol.

I have been cleaning carbs in Pine sol for the last few months with very good results.

Soak in 75% to 100% PS for 24 to 48 hours, rinse well with water and then blow the carbs dry using the air gun.

The stuff is also great for degreasing a dirty engine. Put the PS in a spray bottle, spray onto the dirty area and let it soak un for a coupe hours. Come back and work the oily crap off using a nylon or other type brush and a hose.

I would suggest using both rubber gloves and eye protection!

Pine Sol reuse...

I didn't read all of this again..but I think there was mention of re-using Pine Sol for this application?

After soaking my carb bank the tub had a thick layer of gelatinous goo in the bottom. Anyone know what causes that? Could be a reaction of Pine Sol to crud on the carbs....but the carbs I soaked were quite clean before I put 'em in. They had BEEN cleaned by the PO..and had only a few grimy places..no 1/4" thick encrustations anywhere.

The goo is not particularly discolored. It's thick enough to make me wonder about the reuse part.

I used the Pine Sol straight out of the bottle...no dilution.

Anybody else have that happen? Any successful (or not) reuses of a 100% solution?

I've been reusing it, if you leave the tub uncovered the liquid will thicken into a gelatinous consistency, I added some water and used it again with good results.

My tub has a lid, I kept it covered during the soak and afterward. Not at all anything close to an airtight cover, certainly.

Maybe the gel in my tub was a reaction to a residue left from what they were cleaned with before. ..have no idea what that might have been.

The gel doesn't 'mix up' much. I can stir it around, but it doesn't want to go 'back' into solution. It doesn't wash out of holes very well. A cheesecloth bag I had the jets in was on the bottom of the pan. All of the jets were full of the goop. It came out ONLY with compressed air. Washing the parts (soap and water) didn't touch it.

I'll try adding some water before I dunk my next set of carbs.

Mine gelled to in an open tub but I just screened off the goo for reuse.

I've been using the left over PS to wash the bikes.

I did the 2 Mikunis in the F650. It had been sitting about 9 months and of course I never drained the gas. Just got it buttoned back up and took it for a quick ride. Runs like a champ.

I tried it with a heavily sludged Opel valve cover. It did take off the areas where the sludge was very thin, but didn't touch the thicker areas. Definitely need to get all the thick stuff off first.



Right side standing up. The inside was even worse.

I have it cleaned and painted now, and will post a photo soon!
