Acetone will serve the same function as Seafoam or Berrymans but is much harsher. I'd probably use about 4 ounces to a gallon. Run it a bit, let sit for a few hours, then run until most of the gas is gone. I'd then purge all the gas mixed with acetone and replace with new gas and run for awhile.
Might be best to disassemble and soak in solvent and go from there rather than try the easy way.
Trail70, if you're in the military, your motor pool guys should have something to fix you up.
edit - I've used acetone like that in a couple of old cars with no problem, but I'm a little shakey suggesting it. I'd probably also change oil after the treatment.
