I am keeping myself busy with the shutdown.

My 2hp honda outboard was left all winter with gas in it and let's just say, the jets are clogged and probably the float pin ...

I tried draining the old gas and added sea foam and fresh gas, no dice,

What is a good strong carb cleaner I use?

The plan is to drain the carb and the tank and add a little fresh gas and carb cleaner and let it sit. I am trying to avoid taking the carb apart

I had a problem like yours and took the carburetor off and soaked it in MMO for a few hours. Its been running fine, you could also just put a new carburetor on.

Soak and use compressed air.
There are very small ports that will block easily.

+1 Drain the carb and fill it with the berrymans, let it dwell for 30 min or so.

Take off the carb spray carb cleaner into holes where jets go, especially the pilot or low speed jet

You can prolly leave the top of carb on if it has one


If a passage is 100%clogged , spraying something isn't going to open it up

The MMO soak would work but he's trying to avoid taking it off. hit it hard a couple of times with a can of carb cleaner/CRC/Berryman's.. then run a tank of B12+ fuel to finish off the cleaning. I have to do this same thing to my old Toro every couple of years..
