If dunking the entire assembled carb rack, you have to be careful about what solvent to use as some of them will deteriorate rubber & plastic. Pinesol has changed their formula in the last few years, so it no longer contains pine oil, so that has to be taken into consideration when referencing anyone's experience using the stuff --- old topics may not be applicable any more. ??? ... I guess a suitable alternative would be Pine-O-Pine which has more pine oil than the original pinesol had.
For dunking just the carb bodies & other metal parts, I use the original formula Berryman's Carb Parts cleaner in the 1 gal paint type can with dipping basket (very handy). The "equivalent" reformulated product would be Berryman's professional parts cleaner (#0901)(0950 dipping basket). If you get the professional dip, I would get a 1 gal paint can or contact Berrymans to see if they can send you an empty paint-type can. The bottom of mine rusted, so they shipped one out for free (#0996 96 oz). I coated the seams of the new can with wheel bearing grease.
