Everybody make fun of Gabe- lildevil02

Heres the scenario, Pulled Gabe's truck down to return to stock. Removed Turbo kit with down pipe and up pipe package, pulled his big injectors out and found something fishy... Have a gander-



Copper O-Ring HOSED!!!!

Really gabe? You ride around with a monster turbo setup all hot rodded, and you do it on 7 cylinders? And you work at a diesel performance shop? Why isnt your name on the tool of the year thread? lol j/k.... We love you gabe


But anyways thought I'd also use this thread to throw in a lil tip that some of you may know already and some others may find useful. Anyone who has ever pulled injectors out of a 7.3 knows they can be a real PITA. Here is my way of making it easy. Its very simple and inexpensive. After removing the oil drain spout on the injector, i thread in an intake bolt from either a 6.0 or 6.4 in the hole where the hold down bolt for the spout normally goes. Its simple and works well. As you run the intake bolt through the threads in tie down hole, the bolt eventually bottums out against the head. If you position your injector tie down away from the top hold down bolt you can tighten down the intake bolt previously threaded and as its threads farther into the hole, it begins to push the injector upwards. As it pulls upward it eventually frees up and is easily removed. Ford makes a tool that is relatively cheap to do the same thing but, I've found that the intake bolt works pretty well. Hope that save some of you all from breaking an injector while prying them out, wish I'd known about it before i cracked a few connectors... :-D

Adjustable head pry bar works the best for popping those HUEIs out.

I've tried that before and had a few mishaps with the bar slipping. On the passengers side this works well where theres not much clearance for getting a pry bar in.

Haven't inspected it yet, I somewhat doubt it because the truck really was not running badly at all. We'll probably take a look at it when we put stockers back in it.

Re: Everybody make fun of Gabe- lildevil02

I changed the injector-orings on my 97. Soon after, I changed the oil....found a copper washer in the oil pan. Took it back apart, first inj. I took out, BINGO no copper washer! Had to have fallen off when I put the injector back in. Looked down in the cup and it looked fine. How did it get through with no damage?
