stuck carb

Assuming you mean the slide is stuck in the bore?

Something I have not tried but keep hearing about is coca cola. Apparently it is very acidic, and just might work.

Here is one of many links describing in some detail why this can be effective;

Although this is touting primarily for removal of iron oxides, it may still be worth a try.

Would love to hear back if this actually works???

Got any tips for a stuck carb? I'm working on a CL100 right now....tried WD40, tried brake cleaner, vinegar, etc.

Just got some special new WD-40 rust desolver stuff, we'll see if that works. Haven't tried boiling it yet.
