"Rice Krispies" in Carburetor

Post by RickInAZ »



I was expecting a mess. I wasn't expecting this!


This stuff smells like dead gasoline. But I don't think I could make gas do this if I tried!

I have a great rebuild kit in hand, and lots of free time. I just thought y'all would like to see this.

That is different. Looks like they might have been pretty clean other than whatever that is.

What is that stuff? Do you know where it came from?

I'd guess tank rust or hose deterioration...

Looks like a disintegrating fuel filter deposits. Check the fuel filter too.
