This truck project is making me want to scream!!!

I started this project in Oct I believe and it's just been one pain in the *** after another and I need to vent for a minute. All it was supost to be was an oil cooler rebuild and replacing the injectors with a set of 175cc 30% from Renegade Diesel. Since then I've had batteries die on me, oil leaks, a broken injector connector, snapped bolt, hydralocked cylinders, and now I found a broken part on the injector that caused the hydralock that I just ordered new orings and a copper seal for and was going to instal tomorrow and had hopes of getting the truck back on the road. To top all this off I've been working outside at a buddies house ten miles south of town because I live in an apartment complex and theres been snow on the ground for the last three or so weeks. NOT FUN! I'm also a fulltime college student with a girlfiend and two kids so getting time to head down and work on the truck isn't always available.

So here's a question. If you found a broken part like this on one (pic's below) of your injectors would you pull the other 7 back out to inspect them? I'm guessing at least this one needs to go back to Renegade Diesel to get a new part. And can anyone tell me why there are 5 washers on one side of this fastener?

After doing a full bullet proofing on my truck I had 3 solid nights after work of taking out the turbo bolting it all back in,fireing up the truck and could not get the dang thing to seal up. Something so simple kicked my azz so bad damn near wanted to blow the truck up. I have no mechanical advice for ya, but I will say keep on workin on it brother youll get it. We got faith in ya

I'd send all 8 back and ask for new ones.

I found the broken off part in the bottom of the head so there is thankfully no missing parts. I'm still trying to decide if I should pull them all or not. Trying to get a hold of Sheldon at Renegade but that has proven difficult lately. My last couple calls have gone to a voice mail that is full and I didn't get anything back from my last email.

No, I wouldn't pull the others. The spool valves don't fail very often, that is why rebuilders don't usually change them out. I just had a look at my spare set, 5 remans and 3 originals, and they all have about the same number of tiny little washers on the bolt that holds the shuttle valve. My best guess is they are there to set the travel limits for the shuttle valve.
