I've identified my carburetor, a Rochester Quadrajet #7028268. It sits on top of a 1970 400 ci engine. The carb is in rough shape as it's sat for 22 years without running. The choke doesn't work, idle speed adjustment screw barely turns, accelerator pump sticks, etc. First time I've rebuilt a carb, but after watching 3 part series on Youtube, I've already learned a lot and I'm ready. I ordered rebuild kit and a new float. Beginning tear down today. Any advice on what type of cleaner I should use on the base plate, main body and air horn? I saw a different video promoting muriatic acid + soda blasting. I don't think I want to go that in depth. Any ideas would be helpful. Thank you.
