taking full advantage of the carb "off season"..... researching and learning the inner workings of fuel injectors. Experimenting with a new machine (in my possession) with built in reverse flow and ultrasonic capabilities. 1st testbed my Toyota Matrix 2.4 Denso injectors, pulled and cleaned....WOW what a difference. I thought it was running ok at 80K miles, but now discernably smoother (everywhere) and more powerful. I did notice (after cleaning) the spray pattern had dramatically improved. I'll monitor fuel efficiency going forward.

Next up to be my Ducati SS800 (Weber-Marelli injectors) when warmer weather allows.

pics as promise...before/after. Some findings included rock hard (original?) orings, pilot screws set 5 turns out! (way too far), ovaled needle jets (replaced with new)

Hello,

You do fantastic work on carbs. Is injector-cleaning something you're going to offer in the future, or is this more for self-research and learning?
I have an engine-build I'm hoping to pick back up in the summer, and it'd be nice to know of other cleaning-service options other than RC, etc.

initially, my intent was research, learning, doing my own injector services whether bike or auto. I'd def entertain doing them commercially.
