More fuel in the mail!

Took my injectors out tonight, sending them back to bean tomorrow afternoon. Going from stage two split shots to a 2?? cc single. Not sure exactly how big, just know its bigger than what I got now. Going to install valve springs, this week while the injectors are out, and replace the glow plugs AGAIN. Two of them had came apart. When I went to pull off the connector the top half of the glow plug came out with it....?? Cheap piece of crap. (autolite)
What was the brand that was supposed to be so good?
Several of the o-rings looked to be possibly leaking too. Hopefully this things gonna be like a brand new truck after getting it back together! Oh yeah, getting the tunes modded to run the singles by Jody.

Re: More fuel in the mail!

Thanks, I cant wait to get back to the track. But, what I really want is a second chance at the truck pulls coming up in a month or so. Stupid dodges.....
I got OWNED with a capitol p. No traction sucks big time.
I will be using the rules to my advantage next time.

Motorcraft BERU glow plugs are less than $10 each from Autozone. Autolite are known to be crap. Good luck getting the other 1/2 of the broken one out. Some have soaked them in kroil or PB and then pressurized the cylinder through the injector cup. "pop" Others have driven it through and tried to retrieve it through the injector cup. Third option is to pull the head. Last option is to drive it in and pray it blows out without taking out a valve, piston or your turbine wheel. Use anti-seize in the replacement GP threads. Lead based anti-seize works best if you can find it. Copper is most common however.

Hopefully they will screw out. Only the center part came out. The threaded body is still in place. And, since they have only been in there about a year, and I did never sieze them when replaced, maybe they will come on out.
That would scare the crap out of me driving it in and hoping it went through the exhaust side. Especially the turbo.

Re: More fuel in the mail!

Valve springs came in today, bean should have the injectors sometime tomorrow.
Next question.
When you have a drop in fuel pressure, exactly what does it feel like/sound like?
More specificly, does it just start falling off on hp, or does it cut out like a rev limit? I have the truck apart, and no way to test. I'm just curious, because my rev limit should be around 3,900, and it would start acting like it was limiting around 3,400-3,500. Sounded just like the rev limiter coming in. Didnt do this with my old chip. Wondering maybe if the DP is throwing more at it , and causing lower fuel pressure.

Re: More fuel in the mail!

Scott, in my experience the truck just quits pulling when it "runs out of fuel" and fuel pressure drops.

Not rough or anything, just kinda falls on its face.

hope that helps

That's exactly what mine does now, with my in cab fuel pressure gauge, you can actually watch the needle fall and feel the truck losing some of it's pull. Kind of neat to see and feel how it affects the truck at the same time.
