    pressure cleaning RIVA IC

    Has anyone had their RIVA IC or for that matter, any external IC's pressure cleaned , or dunked in special chemicals to break up the sand and other things that cause them to get clogged ? Like a radiator place or something ??

    Ive cleaned it out like Jerry's "how to", but i really never saw anything come out of there .

    I have removed mine several times and filled it to the rim with gasoline and let it soak. Do this 2 or 3x until the gas is crystal clear. Then use compressed air to blow it out or let it drip dry overnight. Works great/gets rid of any oily residue. It was a tip from Les Cooke himself. (This is for the air portion of the ic, where the veins are.)
