    Remove any plastic on the SJ810 carburettor. Soak the carburettor in a strong cleaning solvent and leave to soak overnight.

    Wipe off the solvent with a rag while wearing rubber gloves. A strong cleaning solvent can be dangerous to sensitive skin. Spray a can of compressed air in to each hole of the SJ410 to clear out any particles of dirt left in the carburettor.
