I am needing to clean the carbon deposits out of one of the engines on one of my trucks.
I wanted to see what people have to say about sea foam.
Also have been told about just putting water down the intake.
Also have been told I have to take off the cat, because it will get cloged with all the junk that comes out. (although, since it is a welded on cat, and I only have a stick welder, it may be a problem).

Anything else that I should look at that may help me with this, or the high compression PSI of the engine?

Thanks

Garrett

I have used Seafoam for years with my Kohler and Briggs motors to winterize of Summerize them for long periods of non-use.

Because of it, I have gone YEARS without a carb rebuild in engines that others have had to rebuild more often.

I did "Clean" a Cruiser carb with it once and it seemed to work well.

Try it, I am sold on its quality.

I've used it, and it seems to work.

I mostly use GM top engine cleaner.

An old hot rod builder I know swears by that. Pours it in everything from day one, diesels and gas. Seems to work really well for him.

Its great stuff. It does its job.

Make sure you are in a well ventilated place because it makes a LOT of smoke if you have carbon buildup.

I ran it thru my original 1973, 95K mile IH SII engine. Tons of white smoke....but it ran a lot better afterwards.

Its like Marvel Mystery Oil.....it works.

My favorite is BG44k. It works wonders.

I've found it at napa and southern auto.


NOTE: DO NOT POUR DOWN THE INTAKE OF A DIESEL!!!
This will cause a runaway.

I have been using JB Blaster from the same company that makes PB Blaster ("Weasel Piss") the killer rust break free stuff. It works good, now i have to try the SeaFoam stuff and see about it.

Used to swear on the blaster stuff until I got my first bottle of Sea Foam.

Sea Foam is the BEST I have used.

The carbon woln't come out as particulates, but will be burnt out. Now, I would worry about the junk burning it will make messing up the cat, but I doubt it'll plug it.

Useless tidbit...

Justice Brothers does NOT make PB Blaster even though it says they do right on the PB Blaster can. I can verify this with our distributor if you'd like...




Seafoam is fun, head to your local mall parking lot and do it on a busy day :flipoff2:
