I say either take the unit apart and clean it properly or don't do it at all...

CLR is that cleaner for calcium, lime and rust.

Yes, I know..I see the commercials of people using it on their bathtubs, not their precision fuel metering devices.

Well, I wouldn't back flush junk into my FD... I'd take it apart and clean it as properly as possible.

Besides, the rubber orings/bellows etc in there take quite a beating when you pump lots of carb clean through.

You can open it, you just need to be Careful, pay attention to what goes where etc.

If you take your time, even take a few pictures as it come apart you shouldn't have a hard time. Just don't turn any of the adjusters on each port..they are set as they are for a reason.
