Injector cleaning service???

1997 F-250, 7.3 PSD, 158k miles on it. Hard starting and when started lots and lots of white smoke for the first three to five minutes of operation. It is for this reason that I am pulling my injectors and replacing the glow plugs.

I am not a diesel mechanic (but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express) so I have no experience in analyzing the level of carbon build up on the injector tips. There IS some carbon build up but again, this is the first time I have ever pulled injectors.

Does anyone know of a service that I can send these really expensive injectors to who will clean them and install new o-rings? I thought I had read of that somewhere.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Jonathan
