What are the procedures everyone completes when cleaning your alcohol carb for the winter?Thoughts on cranking the car bi-weekly over winter. Doesn't typically get real cold in this part, some people race year round.This message has been edited. Last edited by: CTRacing,
Start it w/o pump on till bowls are empty fill with race gas thru vents, cap off vents.
I soak the carb in a container of diesel fuel, drain it and then put it back on. I do this to gas carbs too. They look like brand new and start up like new in the spring.
Drain it . Take apart, blow air thru it. Spray with wd40... Reassemble... Put in box in closet.. Get depressed every time I see it knowing it's not racing season. Put back on car in spring and get excited.
Pump all alcohol out of cell .. put in a few gallons of gasoline. Hit pump a few times till gasoline comes out of lines up front... Let set over winter, pull fuse so no accidental pumping. Cap lines. Spring pump it all out and refill with alcohol. Keeps pump from setting in alcohol all winter.

Winter? Whats that??
We start it twice between Thanksgiving and new years...
More like summerize it! When i summerize it i drain carb and fill it with rec gas with stabil in it. Fog the motor with wd40.
I spray the linkage with WD-40, thats about it.
