so i want to stop the flow of fuel to my injectors one at a time for testing purposes, its my understanding that i can do this by blocking the fuel lines one at a time off the common rail, I understand this is very high pressure and dangerous.
i do not have a spare CR or fuel lines to use as donors, was hoping somone knew what thread that was comming off the CR, or a method of capping it, I do have a nearby hydraulic store, hoping i could find something there.
If not , can i remove one wire at a time from each injector, w/o killing myself, I know a dealer can cut one injector out at a time, but im hours away form anyone with that capability

There is a cap, its a miller tool. Search the forum, there is the part # listed somewhere on here. Its a cap just as you would imagine. Maybe the hydraulic shop can make you something that would work, its a real simple idea. Bring them a fuel line and see if they can make something?
Sounds like a quick way to throw an injector circuit open code and a check engine light, maybe even limp mode, who knows. Don't do it, but it will technically not allow the circuit to fire. If you wanted to bypass it electrically, get a resistor/potentiometer that has equal ohms to the injector coil and connect that to the leads for the injector, this way the computer will think everything is okay.
EDIT: the point of the tool is to test for a mechanical leak of fuel pressure. Without the cap, the fuel pressure is still lost. The injector firing is not the cause of the loss of pressure.
