Re: [DML] Cleaning fuel injectors

I have found using an ultrasonic cleaner with Berrymans works best. Put
water in the ultrasonic and the injectors in a glass continer with Berrymans
and put it then in the water.
Some of the good ultrasonics also heat.
I then blow the ijectors out with air and you can see it the pattern is good
or not.
I have also used one of the commercial cannister cleaners that hooks up to
air that you fill with a chemical of your choice , screw it onto the
injector and on to an air compessor and it forces the chemical through.
Using both of these procedures in tandem will pretty much restore most
injectors to new condition..
