HOW TO – Two Cycle Carburetor Cleaning / Rebuild (Part 2 of 2)

Written By: Leaf Blower Guy - May• 11•14

Since this is only an instructional video series I was not going to use any carburetor cleaner. Basically i’m explaining how to check the pump diaphragm, & metering diaphragm as well as how to clean a two cycle carburetor. K10-WAT & K20-WAT rebuild kits are for all WA & WT series Walbro carburetors. Most of the time you can get away with ordering a K10-WAT if you only need to replace the diaphragms. If you need to do a complete rebuild order K20-WAT. There are special tools for checking both Zama, and Walbro carburetor metering levers but I have found that a metal straight edge ruler is just as accurate. WALBRO METERING LEVER TOOL : compare.ebay.com ZAMA METERING LEVER TOOL : cgi.ebay.com This rebuild / cleaning procedure will also apply to carburetors without a purge bulb. I will do a proper video when I have an actual rebuild or cleaning.

    @Toppervision1 For a degreaser I like Gunk Engine Brite the best. Allowing water mixed with oil or cleaning solvents to run down the driveway, and into the gutters is illegal in some parts of the United States.

    When I clean a machine I use just enough degreaser to get everything loose. After the air compressor I will wipe off the concrete with an old rag.

    @AllSmallEngines Aha, nice to meet another neat freak. Most mechanics are. First thing I must do is a simple green wash. Have you found a good degreaser? Also, curious, when washing the really dirty or larger machines covered in oil and dirt, do you just spray it off and let it run down the driveway, or have you found any way to capture all that to dispose of it properly?

    @Toppervision1 Thanks again! I store my spare carburetors in a zip lock bag to keep them clean. Also, over the years after each use I have always made sure that my equipment was spotless or close to it.

    Another well presented instructional video. It just seems so odd to see one that clean on the outside. They usually look as though they’ve been in a war.
