Im getting ready to do an injector swap on my 97 OBS 7.3. Are there any precautions i need to do before i pull them out? ie fuel lines... oil lines???? As well as reinstallation and before start up? :ford:
Just go slow and take your time. You can hear a different sound when you fully seat the injectors. Before you start, lay a straight edge across the top of all of the injectors. See how they are all at the same level. When you finish, if they are not all at the same level, it aint' right. Fix the high ones.
ok i got the install complete. started my truck and let it run for 30min before i test drove it. on my way back it started runnin rough and died. now i cant get it started. is there something i over looked or didnt do? any ideas?
i have and all oil levels are ok. i did find a pocket of air in the oil rail but still no change. wants to start with a little help but thats it. is it possible that im air locked in the injectors? on the oil side? how do you bleed out the air on the fuel side?
What is the oil level in the HPOP reservoir? Did you top it off before trying to crank it over?
Does the wait to start light on the dash come on?
With all the cranking on the starter you may want to keep a charge on the batteries. Don't over heat the starter.
im getting 370psi oil pressure on my scan tool and 30 psi at the ipr on a gauge while cranking. after it died i pulled the front plugs in the oil gallies and found some air. is it possible that im airlocked? is the a procedure for bleeding the system?
Running it will clear the air out. Make sure you have hot batts and no more than 15 seconds on the starter. Wait a couple minutes between cranks to cool the starter. If you had it running, that is not the issue.
Cleaning is the IPR itself. That link has a good how to.
I bought an 02 ccsb 7.3 less than 2yrs ago and the charge light was on when I got it. Previous owner replaced alternator and both batteries. I figured I'd get around to figuring out why the idiot light was on. Well, the alternator finally quit charging this week. I replaced it; no luck...
About a month ago I started having problems with my 1997 powerstroker. I had blown an injector cup on cylinder #7. I replaced all 8 cups to be safe using Ford oem parts. After I put her all back together and got her started she seemed like she was running better than she ever has.
I took off...
Changed out my hpop, hpop lines, icp, irp, ebp, and ebp tube. Got it fired up but it ran really rough with lots of black smoke. Removed icp to let out some air and topped off with oil. Cant get it started.
Charged both batteries, no trouble codes, koeo injector buzz test checked out but...
Hey yawl I did an air leak test today with about 70 psi of air. I put 12v on the ipr and pressurised the whole system hearing a small leak. I then isolated the right side followed by the left side. Pressure held on each side. I didnt have the correct fittings to isolate the hpop so I pressurised...
New to the site, truck sitting on side of the road, all info appreciated.
2000 7.3 220,000 miles. Started out with loosing power while under load or going uphill, Would coast to a stop with rough idle, kill engine and then restart, and it will run fine for awhile. This could happen every 200...
