I held back to not put too many cooks in the engine

But when tearing it down a life size card board timing cover is where you put all the hardware and torque specs . I stole this idea from a smart mechanic you can see part of it here along with my homemade crank pulley holding tool . It lists the torque and sequence , a little tape on rear holds bolts . Good luck to us .

I am rfeady to put the fuel rail back on but I am not sure about these Ford Escape 3.0L V6 injectors ....They fit nice, the plug is thye same, they are two hole and have the same spray pattern but I have not been able to verify the part number since the ones from the escape do not have part numbers on them? So, i am scared, I do not want this to happen again. Any advice is aprreciated ..Thanks

Dale

Motor oil up orings and install in rail put newspaper under

Turn key on -Just to make sure none dripping , I would think it would work . PCM and o2 going to determine pulse width . They should not out perform originals .It would seem to be less performance than anything . But this is over my head . If the flood had not got my old ones I would ship them to you ,they were still good until the salt water got them . . Somebody on here must have changed them out under maint and still have old ones . I'm going to change again in 30k miles or so. I have 70k right now . Didn't you say they were the same resistance same numbers . You must have tested and cleaned them .

Yes, I tested and cleaned them and they squirt just fine under pressure. Spay pattern seems indenticle to the originals.

I did some research and from what I can determine they both are 24 lb injectors so they should work just fine. Not sure why they are different part numbers though. Worst that can happen is the check engine light comes on for running lean if they don't flow as much as the originals.

I knew there was some smarter people out there.I did check rock auto and they were different numbers . I would change them once the engine proves out on down the road. I don't believe in old injectors .
