Heya mates, so been looking into all mechanicals on my F250 and slowly redoing and attending to things, so now I want to replace injectors BUT aint buying from Ford here in South Africa (to dam pricy) but read using their part number It uses a bosch system so can anyone help on this as well as the diesel pump. thanks again
We have the same problem here and have to source our parts
from the US.
Even with freight it's still cheaper than local prices and there
is very little that is even available here.
Don't know about the 4.2 motors, they are pretty much
all 7.3 litre here.
Is there any reason you want to replace the injectors? Is there an issue?
If there are any issues, typically a diesel like yours with mechanical injection can have the injectors rebuilt and balanced. Any reputable diesel workshop that has a good knowledge of injection pumps can do this, and the cost is may be cheaper than new injectors.
However, I believe the Bosch part number for injectors on these is 0 432 193 731, there are also MWM and VW part numbers that give you the same injector. I know a 4cyl version of the 4.2 was available in Europe, it may possibly have been sold in South Africa too?
If your Ford dealer gives you this part number for the injectors: BF9T 9E527 BA - they should be right.
Unless you often have ****ty fuel, I wouldn't bother.
Mechanical injectors like those should go 300k or longer between rebuilds/replacements with good fuel (and assuming you aren't throwing smoke)
If truck stumbles at WOT, it typically means that the injection pump isn't getting enough fuel, or its getting a small amount of air sucked into the system.
Possible causes could be a failing lift pump, blocked fuel filter, or a slight air leak in one of the fuel lines.
nope the fuel I use is 50ppm or 10ppm and change fuel filter every 5000km, suppose over kill. thank for the other advise I will now give the lines once over as well and leave injectors for now. my F250 is my princess so doesn't really work only tows my jetski
