6.0 injector sleeve tools

I am looking for the tools to replace injector sleeves on my 6.0, and can't justify spending $500 on the tools to use one time. If anyone knows where you can rent tools or buy used tools for reasonable cost I would appreciate it greatly. Not having much luck finding tools in my area.

I own the whittaker ones I made my own up before i bought these They are worth their weight in gold!
Best advice i can give you to make your own up, if you know what the matco 5.4 spark plug removal tool looks like, study it and make a bigger version of it and then get some round stock i forgot the size but i took round stock and cut it to length i needed and pounded them in.


Before you go buying an injector cup tool or making one up, do you have the heads off? Ive had heads that were cracked around the cup that you couldnt see with the naked eye and sent the heads out since before the tool i made or buying these whitaker tools, you had to pull the heads off to replace the rear cylinders cups. Guess what, its best to be safe than sorry.

If you have fuel in the coolant when its hot and only when its hot-cracked head.

When I removed the injector on the front cylinder on the passenger side there was no copper seal. I was digging around in the cup to try to get the seal out and damaged it. That is what I need the tools for. Can't spend the money to replace a three and a half dollar part. Wish there was a place to rent tools around here.

Is anyone familiar with the size of the tap that the whitaker 6.0 liter injector sleeve remover uses? I want to make my own tool but need to know the size of the tap so I can run out and get one.
