I do have the manuals and the shut down is not tripped. I have rigged a temporary setup so that I can trip it from the rear with a 6' cord in case of a run away.

I am reasonably "book smart" on this bus, read all the manuals cover to cover, just no hands on with the injector system.  I am trying to learn all I can from a practical point so as not to make any stupid (expensive) mistakes.

Thanks all,

Len

I ran lacquer thinner  through the head with an electric fuel pump for about an hour (a hint I read about somewhere), no joy.  No. 2 injector still stuck tight as a drum.

I tried to pull the injector but because the injector rack is stuck all the way out, I can't get it past the control tube.  I'll have to remove the tube to continue.

The other five injectors work but they a very stiff, don't return to idle without manual help.

So, where do I get injectors and what should I expect to pay for them? I've seen them from $158.00 each to $15.00 on eBay.  I don't know what I have until I get it out.

Anybody know a DD guy in North Central Florida/South Georgia?

Thanks,

Len

I was pretty depressed yesterday, five very stiff injectors and one completely locked up.  I went out this morning and what do you think?  The rack worked smoothly and the one stuck injector that I had removed was free.

Put it all back together and using an electric fuel pump straight in and out of the head, it started on the first turn.  A little lopey at idle but strong and smooth with just a little fuel.

I only ran it for a minute and now I'll go put the whole fuel system back together.

It's a good day  Cheesy
