    Default Injector cleaner - suitable for 504 Ti?

    Hi Folks,

    Advertisement


    Iím collecting my new Ti next weekend from Victoria and plan to drive directly to Sydney. Given the car is old and has seen very little use in the past three or so years, I was wanting to enquire is any owners might recommend either for or against the use of a fuel injector cleaner additive for the trip?

    iíve used such products with reasonable success on more modern cars, but wanted to check if this is suitable for older models Kiekís the 504 Ti? If yes, are there any products / brands more recommended than others?

    best regards,

    Adam

    Very nice! 504s love the open road!

    I honestly wouldn't bother with injector cleaner... A fresh tank of 98 will do the same, as it'll have the same cleaning agents in it.

    On a side note, do you know whether the car has hardened valves for unleaded? If not, be sure to remember to add some lead replacement fluid with each tank.

    Used no injector cleaner in 45 years so far.

    Run my Ti on 98 and not had any probs yet.

    Thanks Tom & Robert,

    I actually think from memory that the 504 does have hardened valves in it from the factory, albeit I do use an upper cylinder head lubricant in both my diesel 406 and petrol cars... have done for years now.

    I'm actually pretty excited about the trip ... 1000klms flat chat in a minty 504Ti ... should be wonderful!

    Cheers,

    Adam

    'Almost' had a serious discussion with the NSW Highway patrol many years ago.
    Entry speed onto the single lane each way concrete bridge over the Murrumbidgee flood plain was a bit brisk, *cough 160km/h* after I have just passed a long line of traffic. The on coming car was of course Plod, complete with a forward mounted speed enforcement equipment (think old style movie equipment). As we crossed I glanced in the mirror to see the brake lights come on, no way to turn around as the Convoy arrived. They head North to turn around and I keep peddling, after 10 minutes I ease back to the limit.
    I guess I was so far ahead and possibly could have diverted this 'Frog' got away.

    ps Not something I should condone but it was done in the safest possible conditions.

    Any pics of the car? Make sure you document the trip for us! The only thing I'd be concerned about after a period of being laid up are fuel blockages in the gauze filter inside the tank. Good luck!

    some of my fondest ever driving memories were in my 504 GL, windows down on the motorway, against the concrete divide for full engine noise reverb... at 150kph. I don't know about others on here, but isn't there something very special about a 504 on the hwy at full chat ... No other car has ever put the same grin on my face.

    BIGRR, How about valve saver? I know this topic has been covered elsewhere, but as a long term 504 owner do you have any insight?

    Never used it, however doubt it would hurt.

    Others here may be able to comment!?

    Flashlube Valve Saver - I have used this in every car I have owned, both Petrol and there is also a Diesel variant. You put in 1ml for each litre, and it is a lead replacement, that also cleans the entire combustion chamber. It makes my diesel 406 run smoother, and in the petrol cars it certainly does what it says on the label. I will be running this in the 504..it's great stuff!

    AH,Bravo!!.....such fun can be reularly & cheaply had can't it? (Unless one gets caught!) However,whilst owning and enjoying two Pugs my preference is for the wonderful note (mitt krakkel ven liftin up der fut) that can only be produced by my MGB at full song.(Which is, of course, why so many are convertibles.)It is obvious that acf321 needs a short blast in BMC's finest purely for the purposes of scientific analysis and comparison, naturally!

    I had the exhaust system on my TI 504 cab replaced at Perfect Exhausts in Melbourne .I told them I wanted a more sporting sound when accelerating without sounding rorty and that is what I got .It sounds beautiful now.

    Julian, out of interest what is the set-up you had (was it factory Ti original before you changed it?) and what exactly was done, including muffler brand, pipe material and diameter, and what specifically, i.e do you have a front and rear muffler only, or front resonator and rear muffler, or what specifically? Reason to ask is now I have a Ti, and a big bore 505 manifold and engine pipe, I am wondering very specifically what I install as a complete system. Obviously less restriction is better, albeit what exactly is still unknown to me. Cheers. Adam

    It was originally a standard 504 system but I had problems with bracket near the diff breaking and the rear muffler rattling .I cant tell you brands but it still has the same number of mufflers with a smaller rear one and a beautiful sound when accelerating but not noisy when cruising .You would have to go to an exhaust specialist as I did to do something similar
