Not to be argumentative, as your input "KLHANSEN" has always been good, but when I see DieselTechRon perform a test and explain why its done, I'm going to trust it. Also, the IDS is not the same. ...

What is everyone's opinion of Auto-Enginuity?

All,

Just trying to trouble shoot a noticeable fuel efficiency issue I've had since the repairs I did on my 2005 F350 6.0L 4x4 this last winter. For those of you that have not seen those posts, I...

Well everyone, I welded a bolt to the remains of the ICP, on my old rail, and got it out. I then replaced the "new-used" rail with the original one (didn't mess with the ball tubes) and after...

I have the parts to "re-re" seal the injector, it certainly isn't going to hurt anything. I'll do a better job of lubing the ball tubes up when installing the rail. I did notice that the rail...

I've already put new orings on all of the (1, 3, 5, 7) injectors. The injectors on the other side are all new.

Are you saying to "re"-re-oring the injector?

I can certainly do the gauge with the air line and shut off valve but I can "hear" an air leak under the rail around injector #3 (2nd from the front on passenger side). I pinpointed it in that area...

Hopefully, I'll put this back together this evening, and it will start after I prime the High Pressure Oil system.

Thanks Bismic, I'll get the seal kit and replace it tonight to see how the air test performs again.

Thanks,
