    They say necessity is the mother of invention. Well my Mutoh falcon Jr got a plugged spit reservoir. I found a baby snot sucker in the medicine cabinet and thus I now have a tool to flushing out the reservoir drain tube. I filled the reservoir with cleaning solution and inserted the new tool down into the drain, and by pressing down until it seals tight, I pump the bulb and got it to drain just fine. I waited awhile before I posted this to make sure the cleaning solution didn't kill the sucker. My wife says you can buy them for under $5.00 at the pharmacy. See pictures

    Nice,
    I don't think solvent ink cleaner is approved as a flush for infant nasal passages, might want to pick up a second one to use on the kid to keep the wife happy.....

    I go to my local Fleet Farm and get their cattle syringes. You could get a bunch for 5 bucks. You have a Fleet Farm in your town too. I checked.

    I used the baby snot sucker for a while but found that the solvent made it brittle in about 3 weeks so I went back to a BBQ syringe.:Big Laugh

    Cattle syringes. Now what line size?

    Ok so I went to the farm and feed store and found the cattle syringes. Looks like they will work great if I can find the solvent resistant line to go on the end of them. Any idea what size so I can search the supply houses for a few feet? Thanks. -James

    No clue on line size. I ended up with extra when I changed the pump so haven't needed any.
