If you’re one of the many Small engine shops, vintage car repair facilities or motor cycle mechanics who are constantly running into tough to clean carburetor parts, then SharperTek’s Shellac Buster formula in your system will get you spending your time doing what really matters to your customers: fixing, rather than cleaning.
Brian Sims, chief mechanic and owner of Manx Motors in Auburn hills Michigan, let us know how SharperTek’s Shellac Buster really helps him with tough to clean carburetors. According to Brian, since the addition of ethanol to the nations fuel supply, fuel system problems in engines have been on the rise. “Nearly eighty percent of the machines we are servicing today are being serviced because of fuel system issues.” Says Brain. “Ethanol can really make a mess out of a carburetion system.” Brian added.
Ethanol, often made from corn sugars, is a colorless alcohol fuel that makes up 10 percent of the product dispensed at gasoline pumps. Ethanol tends to attract moisture over time, and this messes with small engine fuel systems like snow blowers and lawn mowers as well as the fuel systems in the engines of motorcycles and vintage cars. If gas is left in the machine too long, the carburetors get clogged with a crusty film that must be cleaned out, and in some cases the carburetor must be replaced entirely.
”The fuel goes bad quickly. It turns into varnish and shellac in the carburetor and the Shellac-Buster does a great job in cleaning it.” Brian said. “If left over a long period, gasoline, oil and ethanol will start separating from one another in the gas tank and the whole carburetor body of a smaller motor will start corroding. With oil sinking to the bottom, the engine may not get proper lubrication.” Brian added.
The Sharpertek’s Shellac-Buster has proven itself in hundreds of applications. Shellac Buster excels at removing powder coatings, e-coatings, epoxy systems, oil & water based paints, adhesives, inks and petroleum based products. Turpentine products will not harm alloys such as steel, aluminum, copper, magnesium, brass, and most plastic substrates and rubber.

- Take the carburetor out and immediately rinse with water to prevent oxidation.
- Carburetor is now clean but may tarnish over the weeks to come due to oxidation with the oxygen in the air. To prevent this from happening you can spray the dry carburetor with a carburetor cleaner spray can, that has anti-oxidation chemicals. Normally most of them have that although it is not advertised on the spray can.
