Smile Preferred carb dip/soak???

What type of carb dip or soak do you guys prefer. I like the Berryman but it smells so bad and you can't get that off your skin. Is gumout in the spray can as good? I would like something that cleans a tecumseh in less than a day.

My opinion is: Spray cleaner, Briggs & Stratton part number 100042; bath type cleaner, Napa part number 6402. We use the combination of both at my shop along with compressed air. Use the spray cleaner to both remove any grime before soaking in the Napa cleaner and then spray clean upon removal of the carb from the Napa bath cleaner. Soak the carb for 15-20 minutes, only, if the carb has a plastic fuel inlet fitting and, if not, then as required to remove all signs of varnish, which I've never seen take more than 30 minutes. If you have a plastic fitting and also have heavy varnish then you may need to soak more than once but being sure to allow an hour between soakings in the bath cleaner. Use compressed air, if you have it, after the final spray cleaning.
