Ammarine 6404 injectors

Postby capnjack6 » Sun May 12, 2019 12:42 pm

I am thinking of pulling all injectors { bosch 21 mm kdl?} and having them checked for "pop" by Everglades injector here in Ft Lauderdale. Survey noted white smoke and fuel from exhaust. Recommended usual inspect and correct. So now Im ready. Question I have, is removal and replace something I should tackle. 60 years experience on boats and yachts but Im an injector novice. Everglades quoted $15 to test for pop and $121 for new. Any advice. BTW Island Rover is a 1976 CL 42 I have been refitting in Ft Lauderdale,hull # 488.

There are not difficult to remove... unless they're stuck. There are pullers available (try searching for pencil injector puller, John Deere 4020 if you need to narrow it down). Definitely get new return line connection boots. The injection shop should have them, and can recommend whether the injector seals need to be replaced. The spring clamps on the return boots are a bit of a bugger to remove and replace... may want to pick up some extras of those, too, since they have a habit of leaving the immediate vicinity in a hurry. Someone probably makes pliers specifically for those springs...

And don't overtighten the fuel lines!
