To learn how to clean piston squirters on a Porsche 911, you must first know some basic details about the piston squirters on a Porsche 911. Piston squirters are important for those engines that are constantly under extreme conditions like racing car engines. Being a race car series, the Porsche 911 has piston squirters attached below the pistons. They are composed of two parts, a nozzle to direct the oil and a bolt with spring inside of it. Their main purpose is to keep the piston cool, by secreting oil to the piston at regular intervals when rpm of the car is high.
To clean piston squirters on a Porsche 911, you will need:
- Grease cutting detergent
- A brush
- Brake cleaner spray
- Blowing out the right half of the case of piston squirters on a Porsche 911. On the right half of the case, the holes that supply the piston squirters are not directly accessible. So in order to prevent the spray coming back at you from the through-bolt holes insert a small piece of rubber into the bolt holes. This will block the outlet that empties into these bores. Now spray the brake cleaner into the main comportment holes.
- Blowing out the left half of the case. On the left case half, simply blow the cleaner through the access holes and it should spray out of the squirters. In a case where the spray does not evenly come out of the holes, there is a possibility of the passage being clogged. To remove the clog, do further cleaning.
- Further cleaning of piston squirters on a Porsche 911. Use a grease cutting detergent to wipe off all the rust and grease from the squirters by brushing it all over the body and through the holes. Use a rag to clean and remove any remaining sludge of piston squirters on a Porsche 911.
