OK, I'm going to start with the fuel cup check replacement. Here's where I'm at;

Found source for new injector O-rings, but still need;

Fuel cups themselves and the tools to do this job. I look up fueling/injector parts on PSSD.com's site and it comes up with part fiche for gas models.

Who/what is OTC, which has that special tool for cup removal. Also, there is a recommended tool for removing the injectors themselves.

Dockboy had full set of cups FS, but of course they're sold...

Any direction here would be appreciated.

Techs out there with a good link for this procedure and tooling?

TIA,
jack

Well,

You can only get 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 with the heads on. The tool itself is about $550 buck just to get them out.

Pull off the outer heater/ac box and you should have room. It's only 6 bolts and a couple plugs then you can roll the box over out of the way as far as the A/C lines will reach.

Pry bar was for the injectors. I have no idea how to get a injector cup out.

Thanks for the link to the correct parts. Just waiting for PSSD.com to get back from vacation....Will take pics and post when I'm done. It looks like this is a common job many of us need done.
