My injector pictures pre and post removal - FYI !!

Hi all,

Just wanted to share my photos to help others in the futures, words are great but pictures tell a thousand words!

Chuffing Injector must have been making a mess for quite a while!

Lots of this stuff was scraped out, lots and lots!

Wow! Did not expect this...Horrendous.

Took alot of cleaning.. Cleaned injector and all around bore. Stuck hose from hoover down the bore but have left cleaning the bore and removing the copper washer to Autolusso bournemouth as shes going there for a cambelt this week anyway. I just wanted to get the injector freed up in preparation as I didnt want lots of labour charge just for removing the bloody thing! Stuck the injector back in and she fired up but she is chuffing away.

For info I soaked the head in full fat coke all night then went for a drive in the morning, let her warm right up and then gave pulling the injector ago, took 5 mins of constant twisting etc but it came out fine.

Hope this helps give someone an idea of what the job entails/looks like, its not that hard.

Need an Alfa! Cheap, cheap! Pref something older that needs a little work!
