piston squirter Confusion

Gents. As the title says.


Waynes book says

Insert vinyl hose -one side.
Opposite side Simply insert straw & spray away . Squirters should spray

Now the confusion part.
Several postings here talk about using 40 -50 PSI to the passages
So ????

My 79 911 3.0 Squirts not working

Tks for your time/help

Spent hours trying to test mine. Was only able to get 2 of the 6 to squirt with WD40. Either the other 4 were clogged/inoperable or the tube trick wasn't sealing adequately. Spent a whole lot of time on the forums looking for a better way. Only thing I didn't try was the special tool being sold for this. Can't remember off the top of my head who made it, maybe Stromski??? Eventually, just replaced them all since I couldn't prove them. Definitely a frustrating test. Good Luck.

They don't open anywhere near 40 PSI. Look under my user name for extensive threads on this topic.

Oh, and YES, Stomski makes the tool. But it doesn't really help if you have a clogged squirter.

I made a very average video when cleaning mine out and posted it on youtube.
I'd say my PSI was at around 95. Hopefully it's a little bit helpful.

You need a good seal for the air it's not rocket science.
