OK ALREADY enough of you have made your point that you are not if
favor of WD40 to find leaks. But lets try to be a little realistic
Burning WD40 to create silicon dioxide, that is going to destroy my
engine. Unless you are going to pour this stuff into the engine, its
just not going to happen. The small amount that is going to be
produced is not worth considering compared to the amount that passes
through the best air filters. I would be more concerned about the
damage done by carb cleaner. Card cleaner is an organic solvent
which will disolve the oil film protecting your cylinders, if it can
remain in contact with the oil long enough to do its dirty work.
About as much chance of this happening as sand blasting the internal
I guess that that leaves the old propane torch tick. By the way I do
have a propane leak detector like the one discussed, these only work
to find leaks in a pressurized system, like your air conditioner.
My trusty can of wd40 and I found the leak in my vacumn advance hose.
Thanks to all that replied to my plea for help, all one of you. But
then I digress.

listen to green. Geez its going to be a long day.
