How to clean my carb

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was cleaning my edelbrock 1407, and I
reading that soaking it in multi purpose
solvent/degreaser works good. I tried it out
and let it soak over night and now it is
coated in white, looks like calcium or some
sort. Is there a good way to clean this, or
soak it in?

they sell a product called 'Carb cleaner' in a spray can.

No do not soak it in that multipurpose junk, do what Tom stated, plus the big can has its own basket so you can dip the whole thing in one setting, in your case I would let it set overnight and then use the spray to make sure it got it all out of the Jets and air bleeds, then continue with the overhaul. Always use a cleaner that is meant for carburation when working with carburetors.

Tennisshoes is correct. NEVER soak a carb in anything other than the carb cleaner that is designed specifically for that purpose. Dipping it is the best way.
