DO NOT TRY THIS!!! This is gasoline mixed with some ATF to HELP TAKE A BETTER PICTURE. Too bad the injector stuck OPEN. Better run some more carb cleaner threw it. sad.gif  Well, there you have it.............a 9 volt battery can also CONTINUOSLY fire the injector as well. BTW......this injector continued to be stuck open after being fired a few times. I got stupid and hit the pulse button when there was not enough carb cleaner left. This made the injector fire DRY. DON'T DO THAT! ;D You can also REVERSE FLOW THE INJECTORS. Just put the hose on the other end. If you have an injector stuck open..............TRY IT!

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking right after I broke it. ;D The "PULSE TOOL" has no wire clips. I just wanted to see how much resistance the new connector had while checking the OHMs. You can't run the OHM test with a "PIG-TAIL" on. Way too much resistance. I better get some new leads for the OTC  DVOM. Never could get the OTC to "zero-out". >:(

NEW pic above will help you. wink.gif You just soder a connector to a 9 volt battery. Fill about 3 feet of hose with carb cleaner and provide 40-50 psi of air to that hose after you fill it. Then apply the currant. Pretty easy. wink.gif Some injectors will "pee" or drip fuel. If after several attempts to run carb cleaner threw them they still do it, they're done. wink.gif

spraying the inj's into a  gas safe container  will  enable you to  reuse or save the carb  cleaner , you can also  soak the inj with the  tip open to help remove stoburn   deposits

good stuff,  I like the clear hose idea, so you don't run air thru them.

Very nice, I just did this on my engine and I believe it fixed my leaky secondary problem.

Just one question..

when I hooked the hose up to the spray part of the injector to shoot the cleaner in backwards... The primary injector would just spray the fluid out before I even hooked up the battery, but the secondary needed the battery in order for the cleaner to spray through backwards... Any reason why?

thanks!

I would agree. The manual talks about leaking injectors. wink.gif
