ID:	45700 Cleanest carbs I have ever taken apart.
    this is the top most carb on my 115 Merc. I will remove jets and soak in cleaner at work and then blow dry thoroughly. Then rinse, lather, repeat!

    Any hints on cleaning and assembling the next 3!
    I may replace all small fuel hoses.
    Thanks, Kevin,

    Also inspect all of the small rubber oil lines and check valves (if it has them). My 225 Merc had quite a few of those small lines running all over the motor. I found some that were cracked and some that had gotten soft and came disconnected from their fittings.

      Next question, do I remove oil injection and premix?
      All carbs look very clean, yet I'm still going to soak them in neat cleaning machine, at work.

        Can you remove the jets? Use fine wire or something similar to clean them and the
        passages. Parker posted pictures of a tool
        he uses with various sizes of small rods to do this. Compressed air helps too.

          Any welding supply store sells torch tip cleaners. It's a tool that has multiple small stiff wires various sizes. This might be what you could use to clean the jets.
