 Cleaning Carburetors

I recently bought a gallon of Berryman's Carburetor & Parts cleaner to clean out a carburetor for a rebuild. I knew the EPA had forced all the effective chemical parts cleaners off the market but I had no idea how bad todays cleaners are. In the old days a parts dip would clean everything really clean, but the Berryman's stuff was nearly worthless. It wouldn't take off venturi soot after a 24 hour soak and barely cut through the oil buildup on the outside of the carb.

Are there any effective parts dips available to consumers anymore? What do you guys use?

 Cleaning Carburetors

I remember that stuff and it sure was magic. I haven't done a carburetor rebuild in years and guess I depend on the engine tune up additive stuff that probably also doesn't really work. If I recall, the stuff we used to call varnish was the problem to remove. It's not really varnish of course but it does bring paint stripper to mind. I wouldn't use anything where I didn't know the effect on metal parts, but a mixture of methanol and lacquer thinner stripes varnish pretty well. Diesel fuel plus an air gun woirks pretty well for oil and dirt.
