There is a special tool that makes removing them much easier. Takes about 3 hours to do one side if its your first time. When you remove them, make sure all 3 o-rings and the copper washer are on the injector and did not fall down into chamber.

Cummins is a pretty good engine. Be sure and get a 24 valve, not the 12 valve.

Why? 12V is p-pumped. More power potential.

I've just always had more luck out of the 24 valve. MY father in law has a 12 valve and previously owned a 24 valve and said he prefers the 24 valve also so i guess its just a matter of opinion lol

24 valve's are good with a p-pump. Thats probably what ill be going with. Unless I can find a great deal on a common rail.

VP44s are pretty good pumps. Dont have that many problems out of them. Every now and then, you'll get a problem out of the overflow valve or the diaphragm but thats about it. Just keep a close eye on your fuel pressure. As soon as the filter gets clogged and pressure drops, your pump is very close after it. I suggest either install a fuel pressure gauge or fuel pressure warning light. Like I said, very good engines AS LONG as you take proper care of them.
