  First there's no varnish in a diesel injector.  There can be stuff build up
in a pump or injectors but Stanadyne is a good solution to that.  Opening
a good injector is asking for leaks or a POOR spray pattern.  Either leave
them alone, put in new nozzles while you're doing it, or buy rebuilds.  I've
had about 10 - 20% luck with cleaning poorly shooting injectors.  You get
about 50% or better leakage results.  :(
