.17 caliber bore brush FTW! $1.99 to clean the crank oil galleys!!!

Went to Wal-Mart, and found individual bore brushes for only $1.99. The .17 caliber looked like it'd be a perfect fit, and it was.

Chucked up in the DeWalt, put in reverse, and went to town. Worked just fine.

Happy camper!!!!

A word of caution.

Not the type of brush to use on that part.

Be absolutely careful none of the bronze bristles has departed from the brush as they could be inside the crank. Inspect the brush and flush the crank really well to make sure.

Hobby lobby sells lots of sizes of pipe cleaners... Can be doubled to to any size...

If a tiny bristle comes off, should easily blow out...
