This bunch of snakes from a 12HT has sat like this for a long time and while I can blow through them, who know what lurgies have found there way into the pipes.
I can't afford new ones, and who knows if they are even available.
What would be the best method to get em nice and clean inside, and less importantly, outside.

Blow them out with brake clean and compressed air. Then install and leave injector side loose while turning engine over for a while. Put some cloth at other end covering injector inlet. That'll be about 2800psi of diesel blowing them out. I do this after having the injector lines replated.

I would soak them,maybe in Coca Cola. It makes coins shiny. Some builders lime in water destroys corrosion.

Diesel fuel injection shops can make and repair injector lines.
