Injector Troubles

So I hope I am in the right forum. We have a 2002 f-250 7.3 powerstroke, we have diesel in the radiator. From all I have read it is the injector cups and seals. What I can not seam to find is do we have to replace all 8 or is there a way to find out which one or ones are bad so we don't have to do them all? And is there something special we need to know about #8?

Thanks for any information anyone has.

You don't have to replace them all but you might as well while everything is apart. You will need to pull the injectors and look at the cups. If your lucky you can see which one is cracked.

The #8 injector is a long lead injector so it needs to stay in that cylinder. Just mark all 8 injectors when you remove them and reinstall them in the same location to keep everything simple. You will also need orings for the injectors.

Order up a set of cups from Clay at RiffRaff Diesel, when you have them let me know, you can come over to the house and we can change them out one day...

If your in a big hurry let me know, I have the tool from Clay to remove and install them.

There not hard, just time consuming...
