Thanks, I'm thinking it won't be that big of a deal, just not sure what all I'm getting into and I want to make sure these are the right parts before I tear it apart in the shop.

So you got the lines that attach to the cup on top of the injector. IF so I ordered a replacement kit that came with the hoses, new cups for on top of the injectors, o rings. I would think you would need the o rings because that was the problem with mine.

Yeah it helps to open the package not just look through the clear bag. It has black orings inside the cups oops. How long did it take you?

It took a couple hours but if you dont worry about braking the old o rings it could be done a lot faster.

I installed the parts last night, it went really smooth. The only problem is one of the cups was wrong? One of the cups had one port like a dead end but all four corners of my injectors had 2 ports at 90*. I was also wondering at the T in the back of the return lines if I should replace that hose it goes off the back of the block and disapears, I'm assuming it goes to the selector?

I must have gotten the same kit as you. I also got an extra 90* cup. I just attached a hose to the open end, put a screw in the other end and put a clamp on it. Just a little presidental reconstruction.

Hey guys, along the same line here. i have an 89 7.3. i just installed new injectors, install kit and glow plugs. thee was alot of rubber washers in the install kit, but they look to be the same as the ones already on the injectors.
problem i'm having is getting fuel up now...could i have an air leak in the system? if so...does an o-ring go just underneath the plastic piece on top of the injector?
thanks for the help
