Re: Engine wants to kill when spraying carb cleaner around Intake?
I have been using unlit propane for decades now, never a flame up. I also use a DC fan to blow air over the areas I am not adding the propane to, fan keeps the vapors away from the distributor when aimed correctly.
And, you didn't check the wires for leaks before going on to the unlit propane, or other chemical vacuum leak checks, wrong procedure.
Here's something else, I also use unlit propane as a method to test the carb, right down the carb enry. Speeds up, too lean, stops down, too rich.
I am a dare-devil. It's fun.
