Quick injector question

Is it necessary to teardown a stock injector to replace the O-rings or is it ok to "roll" the new ones on? I need to re- install them today and after reading on some of the other o-rings (stand pipes) I'm wanting to make sure sliding them over the injector won't stretch out the rings

Re: Quick injector question

Just lube them up with grease and you will be fine. Make sure you dont put any in the solenoid opening on top though.
The nice thing about grease is that it holds up better then oil, but diesel can also cut through it.

Sorry just wanna make sure I get it right. You're saying it's ok to slide the new orings I without disassembly as long as I grease the orings first? Should I use assembly lube to grease them?

Re: Quick injector question

Yep.
Taking the injector apart won't help anyways.
You can use any type of grease as long as its clean. Putting the oring on the injector isn't the problem. Its when you slide the injector into the cup/head. That's when you risk gouging the oring the most. All you are doing is making sure it can slide smoothly.
