I have seen sevral threads on spraying water/ sea foam into the t-body with engine running to remove carbon buildup from the pistons and I am wondering if anyone has actually done it and if they were happy with the results. Also could you explain in detail the procedure for doing this. Currently using the SE A/C setup with the breathers routed into the t-body and would like to find a new setup that has the breathers vented to the atmosphere, does anyone make a kit to do this? Thanks for any info.
When you run water thru the throttle body its kinda like steam cleaning the combustion chamber. Never done it on a Harley, but many times on autos and trucks. jt
What time frame was the 1/2 qt delivered? I doubt I have too much carbon but I do believe in this method and I have an oil change coming up.
I also do as Ron said. I then do the same with Sea Foam. I spray it hard at the end and let the Sea foam choke it down, let it sit 10-15 minutes then go ride it kinda hard to clean it out. After both treatments carbon is cleaned out real good.Dan
Can someone tell me if there is a company out there that makes a complete A/C setup that vents the breathers to the atmosphere?
Marvel Mystery Oil in the gas, 2oz per 5 gals gas.....

Its good if you've built up enough carbon to cause spark rattle. Most of us have enough highway time to keep them reasonably clean. If there is a lot of carbon build up, I think I'd be trying to figure out what the problem is. jmo.jt
I don't let the carbon build up in the first place.. You know, use theQuote whole RPM range.. I do have to de-carbon an Onan NHD genset but then it only runs at 1800 RPM.. Max
Well lets see my 56 pan got the snot run outta it for 14 years, only time that motor ran "normal" was with a police escort, and every top end in the 1st few years had at least .020-.030 carbon build up, in the years I had my motor machine shop I witnessed literally 1000s of top ends (heads & cylinders) with huge amounts of carbon build up. That includes Knuckles, Pans, Shovels and EVO's.
