Hey everyone. I have had my injectors rebuilt and have now installed them. The motor
seems to sound fine, or at least the same as it did before which I am happy about. I have what I think is a leak around one of the injectors. Small bubbles coming out where the injector screws into the head
. Is this truly a leak? When I installed the injectors, I did not replace the copper washer that is in the bottom of the injector hole since the re-builder did not supply me with them and I did not know about them until now. Unfortunately I am in Ecuador
and there is no way that I can get these exact parts
from the states for a while. Are these super critical or cna any old copper washer that fits be used? I have not tried annealing them yet but I guess that is the next step. Doe anyone have any tips for actually getting these washer / heat shields out of the head
? Also, my parts
diagram does not even show these parts. It shows the gasket
that fits over the nozzle (which I have), but not the copper ring that the nozzle tip seems to rest on. Am I seeing this wrong?
Thanks for any insight.
