I just want to see what others think if the tool.. and see if they think it would work..

And most threads when you have a qustion like this, get trashed. so i thought i would just start it in smack. so its not clutering up other forums..

Get in touch with Jim at Rosewood. His tool set is much easier to use on our trucks as it is designed for the interference issues that you run into on the back two cylinders. As far as your initial question goes, sure it will work but how well in comparison to a tool designed by a guy who designed it for use on the OBS trucks is a different story all together.

If you feel like you are asking serious question on a technical subject and it is getting derailed or trashed notify a moderator.

On topic I also suggest contacting Jim Rose for a 7.3 injector cup removal tool.

so a related question, what is the lifespan/ maintenance of inj cups? I assume that in a running motor you leave them alone unless there is a problem and they get replaced on a rebuild????

well i thought they were bad because when i pulled thi injectors, they had soot on the sides above the nozzles.. But i found out that could just be the tittle copper gasket around the nozzle is bad..

And i found out that if the cup is bad then you will have diesel in with the coolent..

but since I am in there and I am drianing the coolent. should i just go ahead and replace them now just to play it safe??? That way i dont have to go back in there as soon down the road.. thanks for your help..
