These look like a good way to get the inside of the valves clean
I would get some higher quality ones. I did it using the cheap walmart ones (12 bucks for a set of 4 i think) and they started comming apart (the little blush wires fell off) it was a pain in the a$$ trying to get them all out. had to use compressed air and a magnet to pick up the suckers... Mine fell apart on cylinder 2, after that I went out and bought a ton and used 2-3 brushes per cylinder... bought 3 or 4 sets and used them all up (though one per cylinder may be more than enough) I was just real paranoid of it comming apart again and I REALLY didn't want little metal wire pieces going into my cylinder... Next time I do it, I will be ordering some high quality ones from the rifle catalogs my old boss use to buy hunting gear from... If you buy those ebay ones, I suggest you buy at least 2 per cylinder just incase... otherwise youll have to either go to walmart 1/2 thru (like I did) or wait till ebay ships them to you...
