  • Install O-ring seals (6) .
    1. Lubricate the O-Ring seals and the sleeve bore of the injector sparingly with clean engine oil.

      Note: Proper installation of the injector is very important. Damage to the upper high pressure seals can cause excessive oil leakage under the valve cover. This may cause the engine not to start due to a low actuation pressure. Damage to the lower high pressure seals may allow high pressure oil to leak into the fuel supply passage. This will result in excessive oil consumption.

    Note: Some of these engines were built without the deflector. During the installation of the unit injectors, the deflectors (Y) should be installed.

    Note: Do NOT pry on the top of the injector with another tool. Do NOT strike the injector with a hammer. Damage to the injector will result.
