Default How to clean and rebuild an injector?

Hi all,

We want to clean the injectors of a Lister HR2, but it will be the first time we do something like that.

Does anybody know a good tutorial or a restauration report on this website? Or a nice Youtube video which covers the prosess?

Thanks in advance!

Dirk

Dirk:

Unless you have the means to set and test the injector pressure and spray pattern, I would suggest you take it to a commercial diesel repair workshop.

I thought that many people do it themselves, so why shouldn't I

I've done loads, but I had a pop tester to set them up again.

Should be plenty of places, especially near the canals/ports in Holland.

As peter has said if you don't get the injectors set at the correct opening pressure you will either be over fueling the engine or not giving it enough to run and your timing will be affected as well because the fuel will be injected to soon or to late, hence the pop tester.

You say that like he (or they) are the only seller, and it is the only make available
Several make, many sellers all around the world, and some even in the uk.
I picked that one as it was the first one that came up on an eBay search.

Smile Injector cleaning.

I'm sure that you are aware of the fine limits that are adhered to in the manufacture of the best injection equipt.Therefore the cleaning and rebuild of the needle and injector must be done in a clean enviroment to ensure that correct engine performance is obtained.
Regards, Mike.
