    Ive used that method to clean up some parts before. Works for sure. Just a little time consuming and messy.

    You can boil the carb metal components in lemon juice for 10 minutes and end up with a very clean carb as well. You'll have to chase with carb cleaner to clear out the residue though. The baking soda method is better IMO, as long as you have access to a compressor.

    Re: baking soda carb cleaning

    Cool idea. I'd probably build a box to go with it, but the baking soda is genius. I don't like using glass media because it always gets imbedded in the aluminum.

    Another tip from a friend of mine who builds Volkswagens. He bought a second hand dishwasher and installed it in his garage. Then he took out the timer and replaced it with a simple on/off switch. He'd double up on the dish-soap and leave the thing run for 12-16 hours. Worked a treat on old dirty greasy parts, but didn't do much for carbon deposits. VW cases and heads came out looking like new except for the combustion chambers.

    Re: baking soda carb cleaning

    what kind of soap did he use?


    I thought dishwasher detergent will eat into aluminum ?

    Re: baking soda carb cleaning

    I don't remember.

    However, I wash my grandmother's aluminum pans all the time in the dishwasher in regular Cascade with no ill effects. I expect the only time you would have a problem is if you let a concentrate of the detergent sit for a long time on the aluminum and then not rinse it off.

    OTOH, do NOT use oven cleaner on your aluminum parts! It scars and pits the hell out of them! (and releases hydrogen gas which can explode!)

    Re: baking soda carb cleaning

    Some (most?) dishwasher powders/liquids have lye aka sodium hydroxide in them.

    So the dishwash is the same stuff as oven cleaner. I would not use lye on aluminium unless I wanted to strip the anodized surface off. And even then I would keep an eye on the process in a bucket, not leave the parts for 4 hours in the washer.
