Question about Garden
Yes, when gasoline sits and evaporates inside a carb, the residue may very well turn into a varnish or lacquer.
I have used carb cleaner that comes in spray cans, and I have acid cleaned carbs with muriatic acid. You would have to remove carb from chain saw, and take it apart, and first try the carb cleaner. If that does not work, place carb parts in muriatic acid and let soak. Then rinse in plain water. Then spray with carb cleaner, and use some low pressure compressed air to dry and blow out residue.
Use a plastic container to soak the parts.
Caution regarding the use of acid; Do not use any form of acid stronger than Muriatic Acid. Follow Instructions and Directions on container. Wear safety GLASSES, gloves , etc. This stuff can cause skin burns, blindness, etc. Be safe!
