I need help from folks around Annapolis

I am looking for a shop or person in the area that has an ultrasonic cleaner that can do me a favor.

I have a recurring problem with my Honda 8hp outboard. The motor stalls when I try to throttle up, almost like you might expect when it's cold, but I have it happening after it's warmed up. If I take the carb apart and clean every inch of it with Gumout, the problem goes away, but occurs again if the motor is left to sit for a period of time. I'm told that the best (or only) way to effectively clean a Honda carb is in an ultrasonic cleaner, so that's why I'm looking for a shop or person who has one. So far, I've gone through this cleaning excercise three times, replaced fuel, changed fuel lines and replaced the filter. I'm about to replace the fuel tank. If you know anybody with an ultrasonic cleaner or have any other ingenious thoughts, I would sure appreciate the help.

Cleaner

Might want to contact one of the older guys at Bacon Sails or call someone at Faucet downtown. That the best I can offer. Good luck

My honda 2hp did the same thing until we put almost straight gumout in the gas, let it sit a day. now it starts every time all the time. (still have some gumout in the gas) Gumout is designed to go in the gas supply. Unless you are refering to gumout carb cleaner? that's carbon tet I think.
