Grant, I had a similar experience with a LM coupe.  I tried compressed 
air from both ends, then I put a length of steel cable in my electric 
drill and ran it like a router-rooter and that cleaned out all but one 
spot -- the 90 at the rear of the tunnel. I ended up cutting the line,  
used the cable to clean out both sides and then spliced it back 
together.  The stuff that came out using the cable was like black coal 
dust but probably much harder.

I tried compressed air from the front and it almost worked. I eventually had to cut the line at that most likely place, clean out a 1" clog of varnish and rust and splice it back.
