Default Fuel injector cleaning

so last night i pulled my dirty/clogged injectors and sat them in some gas and left them over night. this morning i pulled them and cleaned them off getting all the left over crud that wasnt left in the tank of gas.

i hooked them up and now they are squirting not spraying. better than nothing right?

so instead of waiting til tomorrow for a shop to open up i came up with an idea.

pull one injector out and set in a dummy injector to keep the pressure in the rail.

now take the pulled injector and put the harness clip back on. grab a piece of hose and slide it onto the top of the injector.

now on the other end of the hose place a small funnel into the hose. add a cap of gas and a cap of seafoam. now get in the car and turn the motor over. let the gas and seafoam cylce though until its fully spraying like it should be.

now pull the fuel rail again and replace and repeat with the next injector.

now i havent tested this idea but im about to. will let you guys know how it goes.

would like some feedback on the idea also. will it work? will it damage anything? etc.. lmk.

It sounds like it would theoretically work but I've never done it. I also need a solution for a few injector sets I have that aren't flowing as should

it semi worked.. but like paul said.. i need more pressure.. it wasnt spitting fully becuase of the pressure not being there.

trying to think up a way to build the pressure..

but for when it did go through it was spraying more than it was squirting..but like i said.. not enough pressure to give real results..

I did this once. I used my old fuel pump from when I swapped it out for the walbro. Just set the pump in a tank of whatever cleaner you use and run a hose from the fuel pump to the top of the injector. Then I used a batt charger to run the pump. I like your idea of hooking it to the injector clips though. I used a 9 v battery to pulse mine, but I think you can damage them if you keep them open too long. The only problem I had was it would be better to have a way to regulate the fuel pressure, because the pump wants to push the hose off.

Another idea for pressure is to make a tank with 2 fittings on it. A hose barb at the bottom and an air compressor fitting at the top. Fill it with cleaner and hook the fuel injector hose to the bottom and an air compressor to the top. Then set air regulator on the compressor to 20 PSI or so. Just make sure you use a tank that can take the pressure.

As much as I am all for DIY projects, this is one that may not be worth the effort.

For all the time and money you are going to spend on building something to attempt to get the results you desire, why not send them off for a professional to do and you can be 100% sure about your results getting before and after results.. cost would be $50 total for 4 injectors https://d-series.org/forums/d-series-...l-members.html
Visually an injector can "spray" properly, but volume wise can be way off. When I say visually, I am saying visually for someone who has seen thousands of the same injector, not a guy in his driveway saying it "looks" good.

I've seen threads on other forums about using a small ultrasonic jewelry cleaner to clean fuel injectors. From what I remember reading people were getting really good results.

if you want to clean at home just put some lucas fuel treatment in your tank for the next 10 or so fill ups then every other there after
