Injector replacement tool/parts list

I just ordered 8 155/stock injectors from warren diesel and hope to have them pretty soon. I have looked around and found a few write ups just curious if you guys have any tips/good writeups/tool list to help me out? My truck only has 55k on it and has been very well taken care of,It sounds like I have a bad spool valve on one of the injectors that acts up every once in a while.

I have a fairly well stocked garage as far as tools but i see i need a deep T40? socket and an 1/4" breaker for a few of the bolts. Also is there anything else I should order while I have the valve covers off to replace?

Thanks for any help

you're going to need a short 1/4" drive T30 for the rail bolts under the evap case.

A lisle T30 may work but I like to go even shorter.

you will be glad you have it

as far as the long T40 goes you may have to modify it slightly. I have taken 2 normal length T40 bit sockets and pressed the bit out, cut it and pressed it back in. I cut them to the perfect length just to clear the injector body. #5 and #7 injectors are the ones under the case on the right side. those are the reason for these "special" tools

I ended up cutting a regular t-30 bit and wedging it into a stubby 1/4" socket. For some reason i couldn't find one short enough. Once I made the custom one everything went much smoother.

Ok looks like I wont have my injectors untill after next week. I have been driving the truck and it gets the occasional miss and once today it felt like I was on a gravel road "Vibration". Next Friday I am suppose to go about 1:45 each way pulling my trailer 6k. Should I be ok to do this and not damage anything further?

Truck has no smoke,and when it vibrates clears right up after I let off and get back on it.

I would say you should be alright as long as it's not overfueling(smoking). It's definitely not good to tow with a skip but I've seen trucks ran over a year with a bad injector.

Well I decided to throw the tow tune in to see how it runs but that made it miss almost constantly so looks like I'm not going to run it. Why would a less fuel tune make it run worse?


I also changed out the VSS sensor and now I have a constant P1000. Another bad sensor?
