Long time in Chem-Dip, snow/rain in engine
1) How worrisome is it that I forgot about my carb in the Berryman 0996 Chem-Dip since 25 hours ago and won't be able to rinse & blow off the parts until tonight? Also, do I just rinse the parts off in my kitchen sink and use lots of water or what? Not sure how harsh these chemicals are. Note- I did remove any rubber and plastic, only metal parts went in.
2) I had pulled the carb a couple weeks ago and unfortunately my motorcycle cover blew off during some wind/rain and then it snowed a bit after that before I got it covered. Should I be pulling apart the engine and doing something to remove any residual water, or is it unlikely to be much of an issue? I would sort of expect evaporation to have removed most of it but other than doing a valve adjustment years ago, I haven't been in the engine at all and this is my first time cleaning the carb.
Here's to hoping the carb is why I couldn't get my bike started a few weeks ago. It looked remarkably clean & clear to my inexperienced eyes though.
