Default Ultrasonic cleaner midlands

Have bought an ultrasonic cleaner recently and i have done two or three sets of my own carbs in it with good results, was thinking of doing a few sets for others to recoup the cost of the cleaner and maybe make a bit to fund my bike addictions

was wondering if there is one or two lads in the midlands around offaly that would like a set of carbs cleaned, just looking to gain a little more experience with different sets of carbs so wouldnt be looking for anything more than a pack of biscuits for the first few sets.

want to be sure its a worthy venture and feasible for many different carbs before doing it as a little venture ( i do alot of projects so it does get used anyway but the missus is giving out that it was a waste of cash ) . would also be interested in some really mank carbs to see just how much can be done with the cleaner too

I have rebuilt countless sets of carbs in the past also, so not exactly new territory for me

They're 5 or 6 kg and the channels are tiny. I'd to do half a bank first and then the other side. Old dry Fuel clogging them up was a big problem. Mad over engineered but crazy design. Night shifts are great, paid for 12hrs work and did 4hrs work for free for Goldwing fecking carbs

I've 2 tips for you if you want them. Buy some Jis screw drivers to get Jap float bowls off cleanly (you probably already have them) and depending on what cleaning solution you use in the bath it's no harm to ACF50 the carb bodies after as the cleaning solution Can be very salty and after a while cruddy shite can form on the outside

i do indeed, and thats a brilliant idea, i have noticed the aluminium is very dry and looks prone to dirt sticking easily

no bother at all, no harm in cleaning them twice i suppose see how much of a difference there is between ultrasonic and manual labour

its not a cosmetic finish, you need vapour blasting for that.

ive noticed that since getting the cleaner, but i must admit it does lift all the grime off, certainly doesnt make them look like new by any stretch of the imagination but they do come out clean.
