Excess black smoke after inj. cup install

I am not sure if this has anything to do with the injector cup install, but since I did it I think that my truck is smoking more than it used to(Its black smoke and yes I know that is un-burnt diesel).

It may also have to do with the fact that I did the cup install at the end of spring. The temp is hotter out and that seems to effect the amount of smoke.

The truck has 200x miles on it. Is smoke under acceleration and when lugging normal on a stock motor? I think it is but I am just being paranoid.

Do you think I maybe didn't torque a injector properly and diesel is passing an o-ring?

I no longer have diesel in my rad and am enjoying the extra 50kms a tank that I seem to be getting since I replaced the cups.

Am I paranoid or is this normal?

Thanks,

Ian

Possibly dirty air filter.


I really dont think your extra smoke has anything to do with your cup or injector install.
