Carb De-Oxidation???
« on: October 27, 2008, 11:14:24 AM »

OK - got an Eddy 600cfm for mah 360 along with a re-done manifold for cheap.  The carb works and all but looks like hell.  It is aluminum - not Edelbrock's Endurashine stuff.

 
I don't like chrome really and just want to remove the crusty oxidation.  Any suggestions on an easy way to get rid of it?   I know about wiz-wheeling and elbow grease but I don't have the time for that nore the patience as of late (it's getting colder and darker by the time I get home) and I want to drive this thing in the Snow.  Didn't get to put the top down even this Summer on it.

Gum Cutter will dissolve a lot of it.  Is it badly pitted?

Does the vinegar actually just dissolve the corrosion or does it 'eat it away' type of thing?

I will post a pic of it when I get home...how much would it cost me to send it out and have it completely redone?  It's just for looks...but function preceeds form for me.

It's not really the rebuilding part but the refinishing part...maybe I can have it plated?

PLATED?  Form follows function, remember what we talked about.
 
Alas...  If you really want to have it plated, these guys may be of some help:
 
 

 
If they can gold plate that putter, they certainly can gold plate a carburator

I've never tried Ultra-One on aluminum, but apparently Dwight has.  Check out this Quadrapuke:

I learned NOT to use U-1 on brass, but that carb looks great after it's U-1 bath.

Acid type mag wheel cleaner....and flush it good with with a hose and then douse it with a coupla cheap bottles of rubbing alcohol to get the water out. I would try it before rebuilding it....

Hmmm...U-1 on a carb...

What happens with the brass - eats at it?
