Default Injector pipes,

I have a project on the go just now, its not suitable for this forum though, its a small Iseki tractor, I joined another froum but I just feel its to big for me to cope with,
My question is regarding injector pipes, I need replacment ones and am unsure how to go about it, done a few google searches with little joy really,

I have the old ones so they could do as a pattern if I need to send them away, is this something a local tractor mechanic could handle? obviously I have not been to ask them yet, I am just at the inital stages of sussing this out yet.

thanks Chris

I would have thought that you would need a new one as a spare part rather than make one. Injector pipes are normally steel and not quite so easy to make.

Agreed. Pipe length is also critical and matched to the fuel pump and injector. Any Horticultural dealer/mechanic should be able to point you in the right direction.

dont they have the same ends as a brake pipe.

I would think any plant hire company could make you some or hydraulic pipe suppliers.

Ant, yes its a TX2160, in a poor state, I actually got 2, K3B engines, not hydrostatic though, I have then engine out both, one stripped, they have been idle for about 15 years or so, but this one has not done much, not a lot of wear, I have been in touch with the ebay seller hndy compacts but it is all 2 cylinder parts he has at the moment,

Dan, thanks I was unaware that the lenght would have been critical, I will have to make some enquiries local to see who can help.

Martin P, the ends are brazed/silver soldered on by the looks of things, best described as being like gas bottle hose ends.

thanks Chris

Considering the pressures at the injector I wouldn't have thought silver solder/brazing would be strong enough.
