  • Where to buy Varsol?

    I'm needing to buy some Varsol or carb cleaner to pour into a 5 gallon bucket to do a carb rebuild but don't know where to buy it. Do auto parts places sell it or do they sell carb cleaner thats not in a spray can? Thanks

        Varsol is available at any home building center, or any place that sells paints. It is a common paint solvent and cleaner.

          That is good stuff for carb work... Dont leave any plastics or what on on there.. It will eat it like butter...

              Varsol is (was) a brand name for mineral spirits. It is available at most any hardware store.
