Went for an early morning run this morning and had an injector fail,inspection has revealed a piece of metal lodged in the tip of the injector

Any ideas where could this have come from ?

I think it might be time to order a new set from Neil Ferguson

Cheers

Mark

Hi Mark

 

It looks like a small piece of welding wire to me, maybe in the fuel lines somewhere. Has your fuel tank ever been welded. Looks as though if you have removed the debris it might work satisfactorily.

Having second thoughts about the wire, looks a smaller diameter then the spring in the injector. Thinking back a few months ago I changed this injector for one I keep as a spare, perhaps the metal was lurking inside and I didnt notice. Its taken quite a long time to find its way to the tip.

Think I might fit filters to the injectors

User serviceable isn't quite so easy as it might sound - not without the right kit.

 

Been there and done that back in the day, first without . . . . . and then with the right kit in an injection workshop.

 

It's all too easy to terminally roger the injector (say he, having done just that), and considering Neil's modest charge I wouldn't even think about a diy job again !

Nope, nor me - there's no injection of enthusiasm to phaff about will those little buggers when Neil does such a good job at a reasonable price.......
