Customer Question
I have to remove the...
I have to remove the fuel injector lines on my 98 cummins 12. When I reinstall them do I have to bleed the air off?
I removed the AFC, I used a chisel to brake off the brake away screw and now it needs to be drilled out and removed with a easy out. The fuel lines are in the way.
