Hi all

Well my Manifold has been soaking in Petrol for a whole day now and I have been in and out aggitating the thing with brushes. What I want to know is that I cant reach deep inside the Manifold to aggitate the crap in there but I am sure it is turned to a gel like substance, once I get the thing out of the Petrol and rinse it off with water will that stuff inside harden up again once dried, and will it do any damage to the engine if not?

Thanks.

Just keep rinsing it with water.

Force some through at pressure.

After washing mine in petrol I sprayed lighter fluid into the manifold and lit it, burnt off all the residue.

Yes, as long as the manifold will not get moved around by the washer, it could get cracked or damaged if it falls from a height or slams into something.

Just make sure you let it dry out before fitting it.
