Found some upgraded Banjo Bolt's...

So after searching high and low I finally found a place here in town that would order me in the banjo bolts... if I made a minimum purchase of $50 , so I waited awhile and made a list of some stuff I needed and through these banjo's on the list. While I was at it I wasn't quite sure if this was worth doing or not and some guys said that the check valve keeps your heads pressurized on shutdown and that prevents a dry fire of your injectors etc.

So, I ordered a banjo bolt from Ford too to inspect the differences. I was quite amazed when I saw the ford piece...




So I am thinking to myself, how on earth does anything move through there? So I pull it apart to get a better inspection...



And to my surprise (well not really) there is a whole mess of stuff inside. And then I take a closer look at the check valve and see that there is a hole in the middle of the check ball that you can stick a .5mm piece of pencil lead through. So now I'm positive the head doesn't stay pressurized when you shut the truck off so I was a little less hesitant about doing the mod.

The new bolts have a lot more flow too them... They have 3 - 4.5mm holes vs. the 2 - 3mm holes in the OEM piece. Both have an 11mm shank. The upgraded ones have a 7mm free flow outlet as well.





Sorry for the long post but just got these installed on the weekend and thought I would share my experiences, no hard starting or anything like that and seems to run a little better at high RPM. Need more seat time and a free DYNO

Oh, and I have a few extra set's w/crush washers, put another set on our work truck and have a couple more if anyone is interested.

Ive been looking into doing this for a while but im alittle apprehensive about not having check valves. Any techs on here that can put my mind at ease about this? I think you proved that the valve isnt doing much if its got a hole in the center. Hate to set myself up for another prob by trying to do somethin good. B3YOND got your PM, just want alittle more info first, thanks. kyle

Anyone have input on this? I was lookin at the trusted perf stage 1 kit and that doesnt have any check valves, it looked like a couple 90 deg fittings and braided hose.

you can also drill out the bolts yourself and save some cash if you like DIY stuff...

I drilled out mine, pressure is better at WOT. These new bolts are great bot I prefer the anti drain back valves, its better for start up. Start up is 70%+ of damage to the eng over the life time.

Correct me if I am wrong but does the fuel pump not push the fuel to the injectors when the key turns on? Seems like if you turned on the key and waited 2-3 seconds it would have fuel to the injectors?
