    1300 fogging idea needs approval

    guy i wanna run this past you to get some imput...

    made a manifold that bolts onto the engine lift bracket,the idea is to remove the three rubber caps on the stock oil line nipples on the injection mount rubbers that were fitted when the auto-lube blanking kit was fitted and use these stock nipples to inject fogging oil in the cylinders rather than just fogging down the pots with plugs removed,

    do you guys think there will be enough vacuum to pull a decent amount of oil into the cylinder with ski running

    would just pull the caps off to try but i had a hell of a job getting a 1/8 rubber cap in the UK a while ago when i needed one for a carb job so putting feeler out there for feedback

    There will be more than enough vacuum to pull some fogging oil... Good idea!

    How often do you plan on fogging the engine? Why do you need to fog at all? Dosen't your engine get enough 2-stroke oil in it from just running it?

    I never fog for the winter and I live in wisconsin. Never had problems and no uneven wear or abnormal scratches on the cyl walls. The carbs are great too. But I always do drain all the gas out of the carbs and tank.

    But my engines are usually torn down in the winter.

    If you are going to let your ski sit for longer than 1 whole year I might fog.

    this idea has come about since i bought the sho and the gpr will be layed up more, always fog down cylinder if she aint being used for more than a week but want to supply the crank with fogging oil as well for my peice of mind,
    the way i see it is a can of fogging oil costs 10 and lasts a season on both skis,so for for a little cash i get a lot of piece of mind,
    yes it MIGHT be anal but i like to look after my stuff as i work hard and long hours to buy toys and want them in tip top condition,

    Handy idea........I never fog...never...but I do live in texas and keep my ski inside...the most I have ever done was remove the plugs and pour in a spoonfull of amzoil interceptor oil ,then spin the motor with starter (plugs out) then put back plugs.

    Hydro, i fog my engines after every ride! I think its good to do and the engine is lubed for the next weekend, first fire up. I just pull all 3 plugs, inspect them, then spray down into the cylinders. I have a wooden dowel i use to push the pistons BDC so the fogging oil goes through the transfers. I see your idea. It will work, my only concern is if 1 of those lines came off, you know what happens after that. It is a cool gadget you made.

    i have a long thin tube for shooting down transfer ports

    i did think about it comming off and was considering fixing some fitting up on back of filter but i dont think it will be as good or accurate,

    i will 4200 the base of the tube on the nipple and double cable tie and glue the ties to the pipe
