    Ah, interesting thread. I made a house call concerning a BMW running
    on one cylinder. On finding corroded injector terminals, I asked the owner
    for a toothbrush to use with contact cleaner. He comes back with his wife's
    tooth brush. Don't know if there's a connection, but they are no longer married.

    Seriously - a 50cc syringe is really handy for these jobs. Every vet carries them and will sell you one for $5 or less. Cheaper than sleeping on the sofa for a night.:rofl

    I once power washed a salvage yard-sourced aluminum wheel for a 4x4 in a dishwasher. I was single at the time.

    Tractor Supply Co sells syringes. Tiny ones to big'uns. Needles are separate. Look near the horse medicine. Pretty handy in the shop. I use the tiny ones with a needle to squirt cable lube into my cables. The large ones i use with a length of tubing for reverse bleeding the brakes.

    Don't you guys have dollar stores where you live? Turkey Baster, large syringe, squirt bottles, whatever you need, a buck each.



    Edit: I just remembered Americans don't buy anything made in China

    dishwashers are actually awesome parts washers, provided you hose the worst of it off first so it doesnt harm the machine

    I feel your pain. I caught hell for using the serrated bread knife to trim batt insulation for some renovations I'm doing. :thwak
