Re: Solvent for carbon residue

The eliminator is very new stuff -- best price is from R.w. hart and son in nescopeck pa -- rwhart.com

the GM top engine cleaner is available at any gm dealer's parts counter -- mine was about 7$

forgot i had the gm stuff -- will have to try it again [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

just got the eliminator and it seems to do very well!

Re: Solvent for carbon residue

Thanks guys, that is a huge help. I am going to try both GM top engine cleaner and eliminator.
Is there any tricks to the application of the GM top cleaner (length of soak time, # of passes, etc)? Anything to avoid when using it? How about with the eliminator?

Re: Solvent for carbon residue

you need a dropper for the engine cleaner--it comes in a non-user friendly tin can [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

not really a known protocol for GM treatment--doesnt hurt to soak a few minutes though--takes copper too [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Solvent for carbon residue

How about your thoughts on Montana X-treme solvent? Just ordered a bottle to try it since I had to place an order at sinclairs anyway.

Re: Solvent for carbon residue

I find Butches Bore Shine to work much better than Hoppes #9 or Hoppes Bench Rest Copper Solvent. I haven't tried anything else.
