Fuel injector shavings

Has anyone ever heard anything about getting brass shavings in your system after changing one or more of the injectors? Got a 2002 7.3L at the shop & mechanic is suggesting a used engine because replacing the injectors can result in shavings from the brass fittings on the injectors. Is he off track or what?

I suppose it is possible, but I've never heard of that being a problem.

LMAO!!....What a douche bag.... That is exactly the reason I don't take any vehicle I own to any shop. I can understand when people or mechanics make mistakes and stand behind them. People talking out of their a**es is another story all together....
