Response to Re: Im curious,why would the fuel bowls need
I did say about a week, but often its a bit more time than that. However, even after a week the fuel bowls have lots a bit of fuel due to evap.
When I rebuild a carb, I let it sit in the Berrymans for about a week, then move the main parts of the carb to a bucket of gasoline for cleaning off the acid [or whatever Berryman carb cleaner is made].
I can tell you that I've seen a 5 gallon bucket with a loose plastic lid, sitting full of gasoline, loose more than an inch of fuel over a three day period [again that is with an unsealed lid covering the raw gasoline].
