Rebuilding injectors

Now before anyone says "dont do it" "your stupid for thinking it" "leave it to the pros" blah blah blah iv heard it all to much recently so dont say it as it will not stop me from trying. whats the fun in life if you dont try something new and take a little risk

now thats said and over with


Im planning on rebuilding my own injectors in the near future.

Just new barrel and plunger assemblies as iv read that is what goes bad and causes the over fueling/white smoke/ hard start syndrome.

Im doing it on my own truck so if something happens its my fault and i have plenty of other injectors in case i kill one or two.

I'v been thinking of a way to flow test them on my own, but that is a secret only a couple people know about.

Now my question has anyone done this before?

What tools are needed?

am i correct in the barrel and plunger assembly is what goes bad?

Has anyone ever cleaned there nozzles? how did you do it?

Thanks in advance and any disscussion that goes on.
