Time for our Annual (condition inspection). Ray, our tech counselor, came over with this compression checker and we checked each cylinder. Next, we cleaned each plug and pulled the fuel injectors and filter screens and put them in the ultrasonic cleaner with some Hoppe’s gun cleaner (recommended by our engine shop). Next we checked all of the hose connections and bolts for proper torque.
