I have a '27 Touring with an NH carb. Received an intake manifold from a friend. Went to install it and realized a dirt dauber had built a nest inside. I used a small hand-held roto-rooter to break it up. I think I got it out but then it hit me, are there any baffles or flaps in the manifold that I might have damaged by jamming the rooter in there or is the manifold simply completely hollow? Also, anyone know of a way to ensure all the residual mud is out? I'd hate to have some break loose later and get sucked into a cylinder or two. Thanks!
Hollow. No baffles, clear.
Dauber nests will usually soften if you wet them. Soak the manifold for a while then wash it out with a hose.
Thanks all. After roto-rooting, power-hosing, and pulling a cloth through several times, I think I got it all out. I appreciate the input!
