    " Hi,

    I'm not sure where the carbs you want to clean are located, but if they are installed, it's probably a bad idea.

    Carb cleaner can melt just about anything that is not metalic. A little over-spray may be OK, but if you go soaking down rubber hoses and plastic fittings, there's a good chance you'll warp, weaken, or even melt them. In the manuals I have they tell you to remove anything that is non- metal before you soak carb parts, for good reason.

    " I need to know how to grease the lower unit on an old Clinton outboard (5 horse). It has no plug screws, only 4 mounting bolts which hold the bottom cap with the keel to bottom 1/2 of the chunk. "

    Cleaning surfaces that have grease build up and gunk can be a taunting task. I have always been good about cleaning my boat surface with Raritan and JTD cleaners.

    I have had good luck with a rag soaked in sea foam and some elbow grease.
