    785 pro carb cleaning tips?

    I have been looking for a Past Thread for Carb cleaning and haven't been able to find one?
    I opened them up and they looked pretty good, no goo, diaphrams had no holes, float needles moved freely, the only thing that stood out was some dark gas behind the clear sheet that was comming off the crankcase tubes, on the pump side of the PTO and Mag carb so I drained that out,

    thanks,

    I just spoke to John Zigler at Rock County Jet ski, he gave me the finer points to look for in the cleaning process, and where they are prone to wear out, and what to replace,
    thanks John,

    Hey sorry about the long wait to reply, I will get my notes from work tomorrow, I have been spending a lot of time over on the seapoo side,
    I am building a RXP for Endurance racing for next year, I am tapping the exhaust manifold for my AFR gauge, and I am putting in an extenal intercooler, for the super charger, then the RRFPR and I should be up to 75-78 MPH soon,
    But from memory, it was the Diaphrams that get stretched out and fail, and the tips of the needles that have the rubber on them, the rubber wears down and leak fuel into the crank case,

    I will check my notes,
