To be honest, I have yet to clean my carb. It's a good thing to do in trying to fix problems. I'm in the process of cleaning a carb from a briggs generator which began running terribly. I'm sure some of my engine problems are the dirty carb I keep putting off to cleam.
Be sure to take everything apart(remember where everything goes)Jets, float, ect. It's also a good thing to replace the gaskets while you have it all apart.
