Cleaning and Removal of Injector Fuel Nozzle

Pre-cleaning is not necessary. Remove the fuel nozzle as follows: ‪

  1. Remove external high pressure line.
  2. Remove retainer nut.
  3. Remove internal injector fuel line. See Figure 24714 .
  4. Remove hold down crab. See Figure 24714 .

    Fuel Nozzle Assembly Removal

  5. Pull out nozzle holder assembly using the fuel nozzle puller adaptor, J 41570.
  6. Remove and discard copper seal from fuel nozzle. See Figure 24714 .
  7. Remove O-ring from nozzle holder assembly and discard.
Inspection of Fuel Nozzle

Inspect the fuel nozzle as follows: ‪

Note: Do not test new fuel injector nozzles prior to installation in the engine. The Kent-Moore POP stand or Bosch injector nozzle tester should only be used as diagnostic tools on nozzles that have been removed from an engine.

To avoid injury from flying debris when using compressed air, wear adequate eye protection (face shield or safety goggles) and do not exceed 40 psi (276 kPa) air pressure.

  1. Clean the fuel nozzle with solvent, and dry it with compressed air.
  2. Inspect the fuel nozzle for signs of damage.
  3. If damage is detected, replace the fuel nozzle. See Figure 25735 .

    Fuel Nozzle Testing Procedure

Installation of Fuel Nozzle

Perform the following steps to install the fuel nozzle: ‪

Note: Do not test new fuel injector nozzles prior to installation in the engine. The Kent-Moore POP stand or Bosch injector nozzle tester should only be used as diagnostic tools on nozzles that have been removed from an engine.

  1. Install fuel nozzle in the cylinder head. (Install copper seal first, and treat O-ring with ATE-grease. Pay attention to orientation of the nozzle holder assembly to high pressure tube. See Figure 25957 .

    Fuel Nozzle Assembly Installation

  2. Insert copper seal.
  3. Install new O-ring and apply ATE grease.

    NOTICE:

    Orient the fuel nozzle holder to the high pressure tube. If alignment is not correct, the nozzle holder assembly will not function correctly. ‪

  4. Install nozzle holder assembly hold down bracket with M10 screw, and torque to 60 N m (44 lb ft).
  5. Install high pressure tube.
  6. Install hollow nut, and torque to 35 N m (26 lb ft).
  7. Install injection line, and torque to 25 N m (18 lb ft).

    Note: If single piece fuel line is used torque both nuts to 27 N m (20 lb ft).
