RE: [DML] Re: Idle adjustment screw?

Group and David, If you don't want to buy another fuel distributor you had
better be careful with fuel cleaners. We are dealing with 25+ year old
technology and the FD's have O Rings that will swell and render the FD
If you feel you must put something in the gas, then use the cheapest
injector cleaner you can buy because it's all about the same ( Wal-Mart )
and put it in and drive it out. Don't let it sit in the gas over night. You
won't do much good, but it may help you feel better. 
With the injectors out and when they are sent it to clean I put them in a
full concentration of Berrymans B12, heat up the chemical and what I call
boil them for 1+ hours, then test and retry.

Injector cleaner seems to help keep injectors clean, it does not seem
to do alot to actually clean them. The best bet is to remove them and
send them out to someone with a tester so they can be cleaned and
tested. You could pull them, jumper the fuel pump, and watch them
spray into cups. I would also replace the seals on them at the same
time. There should be a loose plug on a couple of wires under the wood
cover by the fuse block up by the rear wall. There should be nothing
plugged into it. It kind of looks like you could plug a relay into it
or a big flasher. Just push on the sensor plate and see if it touches
the sides while it moves up and down. You can also look for scratches
on the side where it rubs (it it is rubbing). You would also feel it
as it sticks and rubs (again if it rubs). Mileage is not an indicator
of the health of the injectors. One bad tank of gas or sitting for a
prolonged period can mess them up. It is also a good idea, if the
injectors are dirty, to pull the fuel pump, drain the gas tank, and
wipe it out. Once you get the car running again change the filter
after a a tank or 2 of fresh gas.
