Been soaking for 2 hours now. At least part of it. I plan to do the rest tomorrow. What do I use to clean the plastic choke cover?Leave it in a bucket of this overnight. It clears the crud right out.

I cheated. I bought a new one. I wouldn’t put anything but metal in the Berryman. Way back when I first started using it I was able to do a number on some plastic parts with it. I soaked my carb body because I was skittish about removing the plates. With dipping I was able to get it with small bottle brushes and a bit of labor. I used compressed air to blow out all the passages.Been soaking for 2 hours now. At least part of it. I plan to do the rest tomorrow. What do I use to clean the plastic choke cover?
Thanks. I got the piston moving pretty well with a little nudge. Now it seems to be good. I'll work on cleaning up the dashpot. If it doesn't go well, I guess I'll hunt a dashpot down.Yeah the first part moves just like a piston.
The second piece (the anti-stall dashpot) will clean with carb cleaner but don't soak it. It has a thin rubber diaphragm inside. Steel parts like the bracket it bolts to do well when soaked in pure white vinegar for a while.
I know about the orientation part, Just trying to figure out what to do about getting the plates and shaft out.The pump lever is supposed to be free moving and not rigid to the shaft. Might be some corrosion has it stuck. Also, pay attention to the orientation of fhe plates. There are dimples that positively locate them on the shaft as well as their edges are chamfered to close in the bore correctly.
