How about this stuff:

Hence I came up with my own mix ratio that goes as follows:
8/12 kerosene. ($4 a gallon)
3/12 gasoline. ($4 a gallon)
1/12 acetone. ($20 a gallon)
Cost of mix: $5.33 a gallon

Notes:
I would keep it away from painted surfaces although it does clean them but I won't guarantee that it won't dull or harm the paint.
Shaking the mix immediately prior (and at times during) use is required as the acetone will settle.
Must be stored in a closed, properly labeled steel container.
Can be strained through a towel, and re-used.
Not for use in all parts cleaners.

I found that on a web site; its not my formula. Also be advised it is toxic and flammable. EPA ,or OSHA would be happy with it, but it supposed to be effective.

I used the Berryman's to clean the carb on my 112 when I got it two years ago. The carb was covered in gunk from oil build up in the engine area, and plugged up with gunk internally so the tractor wouldn't run.

Seemed to work well, cleaned the carb up **** and span.
