How exactly would the carb be sealed up?
Running it in a cold garage will cause condensation when the engine cools down, you do not want that on the cylinder walls, or anywhere else that it could cause rust. I just tape off the carb. put fabric softener in the car to keep mice out. although I don't have any mice in my shop, as it is built more like a house and tight.
