i have all the injectors out, i dont really know of any problems with them before we pulled them out. they look pretty dirty, its hard to see the holes where the fuel comes out. i cant find anyone that knows how to clean them test them and reseal them, probably because they are disposable? anyway i wonder if i can just clean the tips with some carb cleaner and a wire brush? there is no way to hook them up and test them because of the high pressure oil rail. if we can get them clean i guess we just put new orings and copper washer on them and put them back in. i attached some pictures.
I went ahead a ordered the amsoil by pass oil filter kit because i like the idea of filtering down to 2 or 3 microns to help keep the oil cleaner and its going to help keep the injectors clean and from sticking.
I want to do the fuel regulator bypass loop on the heads to give even fuel pressure to every injector and help keep the 7 and 8 injectors cooler...but its another 600-800 dollars depending on the kit i get.
i already have over 2k in parts. arp studs, head gaskets, egr stealth delete, standpipes, dummy plugs, blue spring, oem oil cooler, coolant bypass filter, oil bypass filter, edge insight guages and EGT sensor, sct egr delete tune and towing tune, STC fitting, had the heads lightly milled cleaned and checked, intake cleaned.
I didn't think the 6.0 Injectors could be DIY 'rebuilt'. Unless you are referring to o-rings and such, I think you have to buy new injectors. I'm interested in seeing the replies and what the techs say.
that is a good idea....i wonder if we could just dip the tips of them into the cleaner...i think you have to physically hook the injector up to a eletric current...i dont think that would cause any problems to the injector. what do you guys think, i watched a youtube video on ultrasonic cleaners and the stuff just comes off, its pretty cool. i just want to make sure my injectors and clean and are good to go so i dont have to do anything to them for another 200k miles, since i have the oil bypass filter setup to help protect the injectors
yeah we were able to get the heads off with out messing with the hvac box...they still had the factory head bolts though...when we go to put in the ARP studs we are going to have to take a motor mount off and tilt the motor to get the head in and the ARP studs to clearance the HVAC box....we figured that would be faster than having to reclaim the refrigirant and have it recharged. what do you think?
blade what do you think about cleaning those injectors?
So i dont know what else to do with these injectors...so im going soak the tips in carb cleaner for a while and then clean them with a brand new fine bistle brass brush...i dont know what else to do...
I believe to cure stiction you need to clean the spool valves, or something like that. I am far from an expert on 6.0 injectors, but my buddy told me to do that before i bought new injectors. I am just going to buy new injectors anyways though

-ARPs, egr delete, coolant filter, blue spring, 5" MBRP, S&B, SRL+, SGII/EV2s, Flight Fab trac bars, 4" lift/35s, empty wallet, etc
coming soon: BPD water pump, Dieselsite HPOP, running for more than a week
So we got our first bullet proofing done. we did the STC fitting, upgraded high pressure oil plugs, upgraded fuel stand pipes, ARP head studs with factory ford head gasket, blue spring fuel spring upgrade, coolant bypass filter with extended life coolant, factory oil cooler, amzoil engine oil bypass filter, EDGE insight guages with exhaust temp sensor, SCT towing tune 50HP gain, riff raff hot side CAC boots, and of course EGR stealth delete by tig welding block off plugs. bullet proof FICM power supply. we did all of this, with out pulling the cab, with out loosening the motor mounts and without disconnecting the AC box. Check it out.
