Project: '78 280Z

I'm in the process of building a new intake manifold and fuel rail, with the intent of having it ready for Tulsa (seems everything gets pushed to last minute, but I digress..)

Since I have already removed the fuel injectors from the original fuel rail, is there anything I can do to clean them, soak them in, etc? They were working fine when I took them off, I just like to do PM whenever possible.

Know what you mean about everthing piling up at the last minute....

There have been several posts in the past on injector cleaning on this forum, do a search. One was soaking the tips in acetone, then triggering the injector with a 9 volt battery (I think? -do not use 12 volt-) and using compressed air to blow it out. Hope this helps..have fun at Tulsa!

3m make an injector cleaning kit which plugs into the fuel rail. Since you are already building a new fuel rail, put a tap on it and use this product. The car runs off the can and cleans the injectors as it runs. I hear its a great kit.

<b>RE: injector cleaning</b>

brother used to work in auto shops all the time, if they needed to get it done in a hurry, they'd soak them in mineral spirits then blow em out with compressed air
