Cool SEAFOAM - to de-carbon engine, etc.

i joined a forum like this to restore a 78 yamaha 750 triple. and they made a huge deal about SEAFOAM motor treatment Sea Foam--products as a way to decarbon old engines.

it did make a considerable difference on my moto without any bad side effects i could notice. i tried it on a 78 dodge ramcharger i got a few months later. maybe some benefit but no bad side effects.

they were both old carbed motors. WILL SEAFOAM BE GOOD FOR my fuel injected m30 motor????

It did nothing but make my 318 run smoother. which of course is a 4 cylinder from a few years after your 6, but im sure it wont do any harm.

I did notice more wear on my vacuum lines after the foam, which might have been me just realizing they were bad, but i guess look out for that.
