    R60 Carburetor Storage

    I have a couple of 57 R60 Carburetors that I would like to put in storage. (Possibly long term)
    They are in Good functioning condition. (i.e.-temporarily leak, etc.).

    What is a good simple method to properly store this kind of metal and designed functions ?
    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Charlie

    Charlie -

    I'd get them cleaned up, gas free, and put them each in a Ziploc bag...maybe find some desiccant packages if you can and put them inside the bag. Squeeze out as much air as you can. I suppose if you had one of those food sealing systems or a vacuum sealing system that sucks air out of bags for clothes, etc....that would help.

    Let's see...most beers come in colored bottles, typically brown, to protect the contents. Maybe find some brown bags!

    I'd spray them with some WD40 before sealing up too. Maybe WD40 wouldn't be a long term protectant, but seems prudent to me.

    What is a VCI Bag?
    VCI Bag, or Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor bag, is a poly packaging film converted to a bag that is manufactured with added VCI chemistry. VCI molecules protect metals from corrosion by forming a thin, invisible layer on the surface.
