injector swap question

I'm changing the injector o-rings on my apparently early 99 7.3 (build date 08/98) the currently installed injectors are AB1822808C1 all but two that are remands but are still AB injectors my #5 (one of the remands) is bad. i have an injector that i know is good but its a AD1831551C1 for cylinders #1-#7 late 99-03 7.3's my question is will it hurt anything to install it in a early 99 7.3 engine? I also have a spare for the #8 99-03 long lead will it hurt to install this? I'm not sure what all the differences are between the two engines so i need some more info before i continue with this repair that i was hoping to complete today

thanks in advance for the help guys and gals

It won't be RIGHT, so it won't fire RIGHT. per say. Have whoever you're ordering parts from USE THE VIN! So you get the right stuff. I went through this kinda hell with my 2000 when i did the up-pipe gaskets, and the Ford dealer I'd gone to had no idea about the vin breaks, they're out of business now.

the injectors i have are out of my old truck a 2002 if they won't that's no big deal i haven't spent a dime on them but will the o-rings work?

I'm wondering if the #5 failed the contribution test due to the o-rings i pulled all 8 injectors and the #5 is the only one that had obvious damage to the o-rings bottom o-ring at that found out where the smoke was coming from

the o-rings for your stock injectors are part #XC3Z-9229-AB

the o-rings for the 2002 injectors are the same part number. So they should work.

If you wanna try it go for it, but did you have a buzz test done? cause if it fails that it'll be solenoid related. I'd do that and see if it still fails, and do the buzz test to see if it was o-rings or not. But either way o-rings are shot, o-rings need to be replaced so.
