Spring carb problems

After 9 years problem free with my 1500 I neglected to stabilize my gas last fall and she isn’t idling well. Has anyone had success with any method for cleaning that doesn’t involve removing the carb ?

 

Thanks for your input.

I used to rejuvenate old Farmall Cub tractor carbs on the C-60 engines with a liberal amount of SeaFoam.

+1 on the sea foam . heavy dosage for several tanks of gas, followed by routine dosage for ongoing maintenance.

I put in 1 oz per gal like the sea foam can says. It is definitely helping....do you use more?

You can literally add the entire can to your fuel tank.  I've never run it that thick, but I've put probably a 1/4 can in an outboard tank before with no ill effects.

Thanks for the info. I had heard rumors about damaging small engines with seafoam...I guess they were just rumors.

It's pretty good stuff - I've used it in gas tanks of just about everything, I've added it to transmissions and gearboxes to flush them out, I've sprayed it into the intakes and throttle bodies of tractors and race cars.

 

About the only thing I don't recommend it for is dessert topping.

 

But I have to admit I haven't tried that yet.

Berrymans Carb cleaner works better for a lot cheaper. It will remove paint its that strong, lol.
