carbon cleaning

Postby Jerry's cub » Fri May 05, 2017 10:57 pm

Evening to all looking for suggestions for a solution to dissolving carbon build up in a muffler on an older poulan weed eater, I have banged enough carbon out of it to get it to run at 75 percent. When I can find a place to get a new one I will do that in the mean time I would like clean the one I have better.

Try some Seafoam in the fuel mix. Use the label recommendations.

I tried letting it soak with seafoam did not seem to have much effect. I am going to start using premium high test in the lawn mower, garden tractor, my cub and in the smaller stuff like the weed eater and chain saws I am going to be using the premix ethanol free stuff available. A gentlemen this mourning told me to try soaking that muffler with wd-40 so I will give that a try he said it will soften the carbon and then it can be flushed out. Will let all know if it works.
