Ya its fine...but the carb cleaner alone might not clean everything you need. It will unstick the gunk from old gas and dirt but you might need to take the carbs off, take em apart and blow thru them with some air to clean out all the gunk that the carb cleaner unstuck...

I've been looking for this "Seafoam" apparently it's not sold in Canada and can't be shipped because it's a hazardous material. Does anyone know of an alternative? Is this stuff like engine in can or something? Or just a fuel treatment or conditioner?

If you have a Napa or Walmart near you they sell it...

if you never have adjusted the valves, may want to check them....hard starting is one of the symptoms
