Is it recommended that a mechanic puts a kit through a carby or its it something that can be done at home without any specific tools or knowledge (of carbys)?

Looks like it just needs all the gaskets replaced on it as they have dried out from not being ran on petrol for a fair while.
It does still run on petrol, runs good, but the fuel that is leaking out of all of the gaskets isnt a safe option.

Its just a standard GQ carby if that makes any difference.

Yes it can be done without any special tools.
BUT
Be very carefull. There are lots af small parts ie springs, plungers and ball checks in it which all have to go back in the right place.
Lots of care and a pencil and paper, or a camera to record where everthing came from.

If you decide to do it good luck.
A lot of mechanics wont do this, they will remve it and take it to a carby specailist.
