Re: carb cleaner
ingredients of B-9 Chemtool pre-2006:
Methylene Chloride (Dichloromethane) 75-09-2 55-65
Cresols Mixture 10-15
Mixed Xylenes 1330-20-7 20-30
Sodium Bichromate 10588-01-9 <4
Ethyl Benzene 100-41-4 <6
this is the old stuff that actually works but is toxic nasty. IIRC it's the Cresylic Acid that did the deed.
ingredients of California product and now all B-9 since April 2006:
Primary Amines Mixture 10-30
2-Butoxyethanol 111-76-2 10-30
Ethoxylated Alkyl Amines Mixture 1-10
Notice any difference?
I'll probably die of some weird cancer. I used to reach down in the bucket with bare arm to retrieve lost carb parts. What we didn't know then..... Used to use air gun to clean nasty drum brakes before working on them. Asbestos? What asbestos? What, me worry?
