Injector replacement.

Doing the injectors on my truck this weekend. I got two new injectors and was wondering if I needed anything else to do the job and if I could get some tips on doing it. This will be my first time. Is there any threads on doing this on here anywhere you guys no about also?

#2 and #4 injectors. I got them today from ford after they tried to rip me off on a price when only about 6 months ago had them replace one and from then till now they went up 100 bucks. So I got mad and said im doing it myself. Especially after got charged 100 bucks for there computer hook up that we all know don't take to hr. Maybe after they get donuts and coffee.

Anyway does anyone have any tips on changing my injectors? How hard is it to get the oil rail off before I can get to my injectors. Also what should I do to help it purge the system to start quicker.

well, its easy they just unbolt, they get torque back down to 8 ft lbs the injector hold down bolt gets torqued down to 25 ft lbs, its a 40 torx bit. not a thing when you get it back tgogether crank it untill it starts then when you get it running you got to beat the ehell out of it, well mat it so it winds out the rpm then slow back down and do it again, and do it one more time. this bleeds out the HPOP system

So pull the drain plug to drain the oil rails first right.
