SHOW ME what a bad injector looks like..
Doing my nozzles in a weekend or two with a good friend whose a diesel nut, but not a certified tech or anything. Hes done a handful of 2nd gen 24v injectors, 12v work, fuel systems, turbos, etc.
Anyhow, were doing the nozzles soon. I do not know what an injector rattle or bad injector sounds like, my first diesel. I've read plenty about cracking injectors from RP (IE: MP8) etc. So my question here is, besides taking the injectors out, installing nozzles, driving 2 hours to the closest place that flow tests (waste a half a day) Is there a physical way I can look at the injectors after I clean them up really good and say WOAH this ones going bad, like is a bad injector visible I guess is where I am getting at..
I have no symptoms.. no white smoke on start up, no diesel fuel in my oil, no rough starts no bad idle, but I got a rattlin diesel engine under the hood, and I just want to cover all my bases here.
