I wanted to clean one of my eGo Mega Dual Coil Cartomizers just for the ‘halibut’ to determine if I tell a diff in efficiency. So I checked out the ECF for possible flushing methods. Well, as is normal when you’re ‘hot to trot’, I didn’t have everything I needed for any one method.
Scanned my ‘organized’ garage, where no one but me can find anything. Ah ha, I spotted a 60 ML syringe. Believe it or not, I originally found it at the foot of a nearby boat ramp! I’m fairly sure it was for adding menhaden oil to fish chum. This has the tapered tip, NOT a Luer Lock.
Well, the tip was too small to seal the carto for flushing. Ummmm, oh wait… eureka… thick walled ¼’ fuel/emission line… will it fit the stove pipe end of the cartos? Day-um, it was sooo CLOSE! What if I cut a ½”piece of line and press fit it on the tapered syringe tip for a lil’ expansion? YES, perfect fit with a nice seal!
NOTE:I thoroughly cleaned the syringe and fuel/emission line prior to assembly!
With the syringe half filled with HOT water, I flushed the carto three times which cleaned the filler to a clean white color. It’s now air drying , with an occasional blow through the stove pipe. I’ll give it another 24 hours before evaluation.
- 60 ML SYRINGE - Purchased at your local feed store for about $1.50?
- ½” length Goodyear SAE 30R7 ¼” fuel/emission line – local auto parts store?
Press cut line until flush onto the tapered syringe tip.
Half fill the syringe with HOT water.
Insert syringe end into carto
Repeat as needed until exhaust stream is clear*
*The exhaust stream was clear at the end of the second flush. I did a third for insurance.
I’ll do a follow-up carto evaluation once the carto is dry.
If anyone has suggestions or constructive criticism, feel free to pile on! smiley_abused.gif
