ISH in Malpighian tubules

We are trying to monitor expression of circadian clock genes, such as
timeles, in Drosophila Malpighian tubules. We know that timeless should be
expressed in tubules from ICC with Anti-TIM antibody. We also know that we
have a good probe, because it worked on whole mount brains. Yet, we cannot
detect tim in tubules. It could be a sensitivity problem or a probe
penetration problem.
Does anybody has experience  with in situ hybridization in whole mount
adult tubules? We would like to find out about genes whose expression was
demonstrated in adult tubules by ish,  to have a positive control for this

Thank you
