In Topic: Dissolving Carbon Deposits?

Based on the comments, I take it you're talking about aluminum? 


Iron surfaces can use much more aggressive materials than aluminum...


Same topic from a forum with people that actually do this stuff:  http://prodracing.co...1&hilit=cleaner

Good troubleshooting..   I've heard points are a pain..  all of the 'adjustable stuff' in the dizzy on my RX7 has been disabled and tack welded into place so they can't move.  no vacuum advance, nothing.  just 4 contacts inside a cap and timing is set at certain RPM and that's it.  not the best solution on a street car, but it works on a race car.


I don't know what that means in relation to the 'points' though.. would a little blue loctite be acceptable where you're doing this?  I certainly wouldn't use red if you're using small tools since it may be so hard to break a screw loose, you'll strip the head.   but maybe a little blue loctite or even a small dab of RTV might do the trick to help keep things from backing off or moving??


just throwing out idears- I have no clue what those things look like on the inside.

It's one of those situations where we're both right......I guess.


Moving on to the next stage of ordering rotors and calipers $$$$$$$.


Also,  would you get them anodized? 

Anodizing is a cosmetic nicety. the hats on both the 240 and Rx7 are bare aluminum and are 10+ years old with no corrosion issues. The surface will oxidize (anodize) some just by the presence of oxygen and form a protective layer.   But brake dust, cleaners, etc are all pretty harsh and I've had black anodized hats get relatively ugly fairly quickly on track cars..   so after seeing that, I just didn't worry about it later.  it's a cosmetic thing, that's all.

While I agree with you in principle, I don't believe it's a big design problem at all.  As long as the bolt dimensions are correct, they'll still work just fine, but weren't exactly what you drew.  But yeah, I'm sorry you didn't get what you were paying for and expecting.  that's underwhelming.  I've had great luck with them in the past.

Quite impressive that static flow was identical between all 4 injectors both before and after cleaning......
