Yep, raptor is right, they dont make brandnew injectors anymore.

They make remans, I would just go to Ford.

12/12 warranty

The thing to remember is that not all remans are created even close to equal. Ford uses NEW spool valves and tests all their injectors for flow and operation. I'm sure that not everyone (or anyone) does that.....at least as far as spool valves are concerned.

I bought mine at Oregon Fuel Injection. They had a great price, about $50 less than Ford, and I believe they are Alliant rebuilds just like Ford uses.

Ford does NOT use Alliant rebuilds

What is Ford's source? You know they don't actually rebuild their own.

That's a good question. I know that Cass went from Alliant to Motorcraft because he had too many problems with Alliant's injectors that are nonexistant with Motorcraft.

I wasn't aware of that, good to know. At least the two I got have been working flawlessly.

I am FINALLY in the frame of mind (and wallet) to attack an issue I've been dealing with for exactly (to the week) TWO YEARS now...my local Stealership replaced my #2 injector and it worked great for about 3 months...

Code reader (SCT Livewire system) throwing a "contribution" code for #2 and when I took the truck back at 4mos. they said "whenever you want to bring it in" - well, I was building a new home/shop and figured I should take it in 2 weeks shy of the 12mo./12k mi. "warranty".

The service rep. immediately said, "you're at 12,4XX mi. over the 12,000mi. warranty" and that was that...they HOSED me...Ford "Customer Care Solutions" said they couldn't do a thing for me so here I am, a year later, settled in the new home/shop and ready to rumble with changing out #2!

I happened upon an awesome Youtube video of a Ford Master Tech. who shows you how to do all sorts of procedures, namely the injector changeout on a 6.blow - I feel I can do this, after all, I am a "race car guy" and have an awesome set of tools.

Some of my questions are:

Should I really buy the bomb-diggity Motorcraft "Injector Cup Cleaning Brush" at $50? I don't hear much mention of it on here, but then I haven't read EVERY post regarding changing injectors.

Is it common sense to change the copper seal, oil rail seals and of course, the O-rings on all the injectors on that bank?

My best guess is that they didn't clean the injector cup, I KNOW they didn't change the copper seal at the bottom of the cup (at that time they told me they don't) and probably didn't brush/blow out the bolt hole - so there's a decent chance the injector isn't all the way seated and I've driven for 2 years and probably 20k mi. with it like that.

It's now getting colder and the truck really "talks back" during my morning commute - it's horrible until I've been driving for a good 5min. after at least a 10min. warm up...my new neighbor HATES my truck...they're retired and have to listen to it warm up every AM...going to start plugging it in.

Any other tips to consider before I take this on? It appears pretty straight-forward and everything the tech. mentioned in the video makes complete sense, PLUS what I've read on here over the years.

Which injector installation write-up is the best/most recent? Can someone link me to it? Thanks again for reading/enduring my long posts...it's been a good year since I've been on here but it's time to get back to business now that we're settled into our new home.

Racecarhauler--new/reman injectors come with the copper seal and o-rings already installed, so replacement by the dealership shouldn't have even been an issue. AFA cleaning the injector cup, all I've ever done is cleaned them with towels however is you have one leaking exhaust then it's possible you'll need the tool. Installing the copper crush washer should be done every time you pull and replace an injector. The o-rings I've reused with no problem but they come with the kit so why not use them. Changing them on every injector on one bank just isn't necessary.

If the injector wasn't seated into the cup properly the truck probably wouldn't be running enough to drive.
