This weekend i just replaced the air filter and the spark plugs (quite difficult to find BOSH here, at the end i bought CHAMPION), every thing good replaicing the air filter and the spark plugs.
when i tried to clean the trottle valve......... i was very difficult to remove the hose connected to the trottle valve itself. there is no space inside that place, i virtually got some small cuts trying to get my hand inthere.
Well finally i remove the hose and cut a cable holder (replaced later with a pvc cable tie).
I clean the trottle from outside with a carbcleaner and a rag. I found it very dirty (100,000 Kms), i used lots of carbclean and then use the rag. I couldnt open the flap ( i got scared), it seems very delicate so i didnt try hard.
Well when i start the engine couple of hops... buy now the truck is much better..... smooth i would say, today i run 200 km and it was very good. I think is the combinatio between sparks/air filter/clean trottle.
I miss my trottle on the top of the engine!!!
There is trottle body cleaner specific for that job but as we are finding out. Very little is easy to do on this. Hmm I can think of anything easy.
That blood does not lube the intake in case you're wondering. Whisky yes but not blood. LOL
