Nice day out, got a little extra time, decided I'd clean the intake since I've had a few stalls lately. I have almost a full can of Berryman B-12 fuel injection intake cleaner, get it out, put the tube in the spray nozzle and grab a screwdriver. Off comes the band clamp and the K&N filter pops right off, so easy access.

It's already on the stand with the stinkpipe end out the door, so I start it up and gas it a little, crouch down and give it a shot of spray. Easy peasy, right?

Holy shit. Nothing comes out of the end of the tube but the can starts disgorging itself around the stem to the nozzle on top! I mean the stuff went everywhere but down the tube, and would not stop! What a mess its making, so I heave it out the driveway and let it piss its guts out on the rocks in the yard - which it does.

Now I have to clean up and it's everywhere. Took about twenty minutes to wipe it all off and wash the worst of it away, and another twenty in the shower to get it out of my hair.

I know better than this, I tell myself, but lesson (re)learned: any pressurized spray can of any substance should be tested before the actual application. Sheesh!

thanks for giving me a nice laugh tonight. I feel for you because I had a similar thing with a spray paint can.

Want a good laugh. My son had a run in with spray on glue. He had a long ponytail that he has had for about 20 years. He looked like Jason after they cut his head down to a burr cut.

But I bet your hair was softer and shinier after.

Ugh. Well paint would sure be worse than this.

In retrospect I realize I should have been wearing safety goggles too. Could have gotten that crap in my eyes, would have been ugly.
