i cleaned the Intake manifold with brake cleaner, then i decided to flush everything witrh the hose since there was pine needles in everyting. i flushed everything out with the hose and dried off the outside and shook all the water out. no more water is comming out when i shake it.
then i cleaned the parts with brake cleaner again so i can put the new gaskets on...
is the left over moisture a bad thing? should i keep it in front of the heater over night to dry out the rest of the moister left over by hosesing it off or is it ok ?

i havent put in on yet im jsut wondering if i should make sure theres 100% moisture free before i reasemble

Hold a hair dryer in the TB opening for 10-15 minutes, There really shouldn't be enough left in there to hurt you, but water and internal combustion is only cool if it's designed that way.
