RE: [DML] Cleaning Fuel Injectors



Just a quick note guys.

John Hervey cleaned the injectors for my former car as well as Andy Grums 
DeLorean.  I think Andy had maybe 1 that needed replacing and mine all came 
out great with only one that was just barely under spec but VERY REUSABLE 
(75% pattern on the one and FULL SPRAY on the other 5.)

If I had the money I woulda replaced both injector sets because I love new 
parts however, when you're in a financial pinch cleaning the injector set is 
an economical and AFFORDABLE alternative.

It's AMAZING how clean these rusted injectors come back.  Both sets looked 
okay but were pretty brown with medium surface rust but no pitting.  They 
looked brand new when I got them back (both sets) and the cars ran 
FANTASTIC.
