Ketchup, tomato paste is acetic and will clean brass. In my case the carb was very dirty so first I put it in my parts cleaner to remove the engine oil and dirt. I then spread ketchup on all the brass parts and let it sit for an hour. It cleaned the brass, but not as good as you see in the last pic. I then used tomato paste and let it sit for an hour. After an hour I use some steel wool then soap and water to where you see it in the last pic. I found the tomato paste worked better then the ketchup maybe because the ketchup was watered down a bit.

Again, the carb was heavily tarnished any lightly tarnished household brass should clean up fairly well with one application.

Besides what Hack mentioned, lemon juice with a bit of salt or baking soda (used as an abrasive) or white vinegar work good as well.

Rust on chrome, coke and aluminum foil work great at cleaning rusted chrome.

After rebuilding the Schebler carb I went through the engine and cart as well. I also built an engine cradle.

The engine hasn't run in several years so I drained and cleaned the fuel tank, went through the electrical system which consist of an ignition magneto, spark plug wire, and spark plug. I greased the bearings and oiled the cylinder, all oiling is done manually. The engine is all cast iron and weighs around 500lbs.


A video of the first starting attempt. Enjoy!

I just wet my pants! That was the bestvideo Iíve seen in a very long time!

Good to hear you enjoyed it.

I finished my Ottawa but haven't had time to do the first startup.

I'll take a video when that time comes.


I also had a 1925 Novo but I sold it before I took a video of it running. However, the buyer did send me a video.
