Ultrasonic cleaning tanks
Anyone ever try to use an ultrasonic cleaner for Carb bodies?
Cheap ones are getting pretty cheap now...
Almost worth trying for $30 bucks... Shoot, thats only a weeks supply of carb cleaner

I use our Ultrasonic bath at work for my carbs Ducati single, R65.
Works really well, very safe, no toxic fumes, doesn't hurt rubber componets. I drop the whole carb in. No need to disassemble.
I just use dish soap and water, dry very well when complete. If your carbs are really bad it may take several cycles to do.
Ultrasound will create high heat if run long enough, 15-20 minutes, so just an fyi
Put a rubber mat of some type on the bottom of cleaner to keep carb from making direct contact.
assholes abound, why own more than one?

I've used one designed for cleaning jewelry for cleaning carb parts, oil stones, dog clippers, and my even my leatherman.
Works great using alcohol, petroleum distillate, or even soapy water.
Make sure you flush and use clean solution after each use, if you don't whatever you cleaned off the last parts will be perfectly distributed throughout the next part.
