Well I'm stumped. I picked up a motor recently and it was supposed to have 100hp injectors. After all the little stories I have heard on here, I was concerned about just taking the PO at his word that they were actually 100hp injectors. So I had them taken to the only close injector shop in my area to have them pop tested and checked to confirm their size. The shop tested them all, all were great except one. One wasn't spraying at all. So I asked them about the hp rating. They told me that they did not do anything like that with aftermarket parts and only worked with stock injectors. I said, okay fine, can you just rebuild this one and I will put them in reguardless of their rating, at least they'll all match that way. They again said no, no aftermarket parts. So here is my delima
*I have 5 good injectors, but cannot confirm their hp rating.
*I can not justify in my mind buy 6 new injectors, when only one is bad.
*Nobody I call seems to be willing to rebuild injectors at all, much less just the one I am in need of.
*If I just take the PO at his word and buy 1 good 100hp injector, I risk mixing a 100hp with stock injectors. If I buy 1 stock ... well, yall get the idea.
Who does this kind of work? Is this something I can just do myself, at home, at my workbench. I hear swapping the nozzles isn't bad, how much worse can a complete rebuild be? Is there a way to confirm their rating by using the numbers stamped on the injectors themselves (diesel performance shops say that is what they would do and its possible, searching here says its not)?
