Probly need an Old Timers Thread here or something, but here you go. On a carbureted engine, with air cleaner off, use Dixie cup full of water with a pin hole in the bottom, at fast idle allow water to drip into intake, when water enters combustion chamber, hits carbon deposits, rapidly expands with combustion temps and blows carbon off surfaces in combustion chamber. Highly technical I know, but aren't we called mechanical technicians?

A very simple way to test for an intake leak is to use a small propane torch, don't light it of course, while it is idling , focus the propane on areas around the carb that could be leaking. Works very well for me. Should idle up if there is a leak.

to check your intake boot and carb to head boot for cracks or leaks, spray some starter fluid on them while it is idling if it picks up and idles high you have a leak or crack.
