Have a walk behind snowblower that got a new carb and then sat for a couple season. The fuel of course separated and rusted the inside of the new float bowl. I have another float bowl I can use but just curious if anyone has ever found anything to treat the inside of a rusted float bowl with. I assume the antique tractor guys might have a trick or two.

Best not to leave gas in something that sits too long. Most of the antique tractors have a cast iron bowl. Doesn’t affect it as much. It will surface rust some, but definitely nothing like carbon steel.

I find a lot of those snowblower carb bowls with pinholes. I assume it’s from water sitting in the bowl for long periods. They do make a coating for the inside of gas tanks. I’ve read about guys using it on bikes and saws but I’ve never used it.
