What’s the best way to clean carbon buildup off a 2 stroke when rebuilding?
I’m rebuilding my KT-100 and the buildup on the exhaust port came off with a little sea foam and some light brushing (synthetic bristles, not wire). The same did not work for the buildup on the head. I even soaked it overnight to no avail.
The easiest way is if You have a lathe or a big drill press is to get a head holding fixture that screws in the spark plug hole and the spin the head and clean it with scotch bright and carb spray. You clean it and give it a good polishing at the same time. If You don’t have a way to spin it then use carb spray and scotch bright. And wear eye protection, Carb spray burns if it gets in Your eyes.
