I too sodablasted my carburetors. I tried every chemical I could get my hands on, and nothing would get the gunk out. Soda blasting worked awesome.

Unfortuntely, alot of the tiny passages still had gunk in them no matter how many times I flushed them. So, I'm still struggling with carb issues.

The trick when passages are gunked is:
ot plate and do it in the garage..
wait till wife goes to work.. Get a junky old pot.. fill it 3/4's full.. Bring it to a bowl.. Place disassemble carbs in bowl. let em boil for about 20-30 minutes.. Take out carefully.. allow to cool for just a few minutes then take to garage and blow all that crud outta the passages with copious amounts of air. It works .. oh yeah..

Just dont let missus catch ya.

You can of course always go buy a cheap hot plate and do em in the garage. But where is the excitement in that?

WOW again.
Looks like a great bike your gonna have there and thanks for the tips also.

So what are you going to do with it, keep it? Sell It?
Maybe take my 82 on trade with a little cash? LOL

I'll try your flush formula on some old trucks and vans I have here. They start and run but very badly. Stuck valves, rings etc... not enough power in one to pull itself across the yard though it will start and chug chug idle.
I know the truck was a good runner when it was parked.
Think your motor flush will clean it up so it runs again?

It has worked on every motor I have ever brought back. the only one it did not was on my m38a1 Wilys jeep F-134 it had a cracked cylinder wall. But it was a trick taught to me by my grandfather. he used to go around the contry from Oregon to missouri collecting model A's and Model T's

Oh, I was joking, I figured it went into a collection.
I guess I'll have to start watching Ebay then.

I actually did try boiling them as you suggested. Put a hotplate out in the garage and boiled some parts for quite a while. Was pretty disappointed. I had lemon juice mixed in with water.
Oh well, if the carb issues persists, I'll probably just go single carb.
Sorry for the threadjack!
