Hi All,

Just swapping over a freshly peened inlet manifold (the 2 solid pieces with 3 holes in each that bolt to the side of the head). After removing the injectors I've noticed that one of them has a cracked pintle cap.

What's the bet. Buy a new injector? Get a second hand one? Get a service kit (can only find http://mrinjectoruk.co.uk)? Send them off to be serviced (would need to be in Cornwall as I need to get back on the road by Saturday)? How do these tend to get damaged?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Theo

Just been down to see Richards Bros (Richards Bros Ltd | Cornwall's Leading Petrol & Diesel Fuel Injection Specialists.). Paul was very helpful and can get them turned around by the end of the week.

He said the plastic cap tends to just get brittle with age. He's seen whole caps go through engines and not cause any issues. Will be interesting to see if after 118,000 miles all of the injectors flow the same!
