The ball bearing thing isn't going to work. I tried putting sand in and shaking it all around, then figured out that the chambers are joined by a small hole (to save the splash-back effect i suppose).
There's gotta be a strong chemical type of stuff I can put through it to work. Tried the Kettle cleaning stuff ( worked a charm on the kettle) But didn't break through the crap l've got sitting in my reservoir. Thought about TLC, but is not recommended for plastics.
Also thought about splitting the bloody thing and do it that way, but most likely would crack the thing, or not glue it back together, therefor splitting in half when a ittle pressure builds up.
Anyway, l'll sit and scratch my head a little longer, and hopes that something pops in.
Learn from other people's mistakes. You won't live long enough to make them all.
If there's commotion coming from the passenger seat, and nothing but earth going round and round outside the windows,.......then everything is not as it seems!
The only time you have too much fuel, is when you're on fire!
have done this but just take care get some "drain O" cleaner some really decent rubber gloves full length then (obviously with it out of the car!) half fill with cold water (trust me it'll get hot in a few seconds! if you can find a cork or something to plugg the bottom hole even better!!) okay gloves on kiddys half fill it and tip in some of the draino making sure to get the swarf (very sharp bits of small metal shavings thats in it for those that dont know!!) poor it in put the radiator cap back on and shake the crap out of it!! let it sit for a few mins then do it again then again it'll take a few mins of shaking and letting it set to break it all up and get it loose when it gets dirty enough empty it and do it all again till it gets cleaner (it does work and the draino doens't hurt the plastic read the label if you dont believe me!) anyway once tyou've got it clean make sure you flush it thoroughly by shaking it tilting it etc until all of the swarf comes out then once satisfied that it's clean put it back in and remember to flush the rest of your system and put some decent glicole content coolent in it and there ya go green fluid thats now visable in the bottle!!
this does work it takes about an hour of stuffing around but trust me done it to my ef and it is very much fine and now clean!!!
hope this helps you guys out...
