Basically a paint can with a small parts bucket. I immersed a really old ATV carb, that was seized and smelled like varnish.
After an hr or so, it came out looking like new!
I was careful to remove all plastic and rubber parts.
I've also used it for cleaning fasteners, e.g. screws, bolts.

As noted this product works great, does the job quickly, and will little to no odor. This cleaner is also a lot safer for the environment the others/most other are. It also seems to be "safe" for the skin, as I did not have any issue with getting it on my hands. I will say though this stuff has changed in the years. Although is still works pretty darn good, it does not work as well as the old stuff. Granted the old stuff was not as "safe" for the environment, but boy did it get those parts clean as a brand new part right off the shelf. This is also a great alternative to having or having to use larger parts cleaner. I used it this time to clean parts while rebuilding a Zenith Stromberg carburetor off my 76' MG. The only and a BIG issue for me was the very tiny and almost useless "basket". It is nothing like the old ones that truly fit in to the whole can. This thing is only like 3-4" round and no more tall. If you're not careful it will tip over while dipping it in with taller parts causing them to possibly fall out to the bottom of the can. But besides the pitiful excuse for a basket, this stuff did great on all but the really thick stuff, which came off with a simple brass brush and a 2nd short soak.

Comments about Gunk Carburetor Parts Cleaner - Complete Kit:

Cleaned parts more slowly than older carb cleaners. Had to scrub the parts after soaking over night with a soft toothbrush. Parts did come clean. Parts basket could be a bit bigger with longer handle. Overall it worked well and I would purchase again.

      I think you can get a number of carbs out of this can. I did both carbs on my BMW R100PD plus a couple of yard equipment carbs. Haven't tossed it yet. Worth the money but is a relatively small can. You probably couldn't fit a 4 barrell body in it.

      Answered on 7/16/2017 by cptvdo1 from undisclosed
    • A:

      You can use this can of cleaner several times. Doing two carbs is no problem.

  • Q:

    What is the main cleaning agent and can it be rinsed off with water like the older carburetor cleaners of the 1960's - 1970's ?

    • A:

      butotxilonal petroleum distillates and some other things I can't pronounce.  It works swell and rinces off with warm water. I've used the same gallon can for several jobs with good results.  I like the small paprts tub that is included with the cleaner.

      Sorry, this Solder Seal/Gunk Environmental Carburetor and Parts Dip (96 fl. oz.) - part# CC3K cannot be used to clean throttle body injection. Instead please check the Valvoline Carb and Throttle Body Cleaner - part# 602333 which would work fine for your application.

      The carburetor has to be disassembled for cleaning with this Solder Seal/Gunk Environmental Carburetor and Parts Dip (96 fl. oz.) - part# CC3K as the gasket, rubber or plastic parts are not to be placed in the solution. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

    We purchased a gallon of this cleaner and the mechanic left the can in the car. When it heated the can exploded and spilled the contents into the carpet of the car. Do you have any suggestions on how to get the smell/fumes out without replacing the carpet?

      A:

      Because carb. cleaner is a volitile chemical it should air out eventually. You may need to contact the manufacturer for information on what chemicals may be used to remove carb. cleaner.
