You guys are really starting to see the value of the Injector Swap Program.
Almost everyday I get a package of crusty old beat up injector blocks. I luv it.
This guy totally gets it (read his instructions to me).
He sent his bad ones in for repair but only after he'd bought my lifetime stainless injectors and gotten good with it. Saved himself money using the Flat Rate envelopes sending in his bad ones. He even packed them correctly with cardboard envelope inside and padded envelope outside. All three of his bad ones were savable.
I will show the repairs then send them back and he will have 4 good ones for the price of 1.
Here's his packaging and letter:
Here is his 3 bad ones just the way he sent them.
Notice how these and most every bad injector I see needs a new Draw Tube.
Notice how his foam handles are pretty much beat up. He did his best to keep them in working order.
Too bad your suppliers don't offer you the foam sleeves and brass tube for sale. Hell you might be able to repair them yourselves, huh?
Notice the rebuild kit he provided does not come close to providing the parts he needs to repair his injectors.
I could sell the rebuild kit he sent me for about $8 and make a 100% profit. I wonder how much he paid?
One of the most important parts to replace is the nozzle bushing. It is inside the Injector block. Notice his Kit does not include this very important part. And look how hard it is to get inside the Injector block to where this nozzle bushing is - I have to use a pipe wrench. Not an easy task. Then I must extract the old nozzle bushing which usually requires an ez-out cuz they are fused in there. The stock nozzle bushing is usually made of brass and is typically worn out like an old brass jet. Most of you guys don't replace the nozzle bushing cuz it's a bitch getting in there plus it's not included in rebuild kits anyway. No problem. You got me to do it. It's one of the secrets to bringing these things back to life. With me, you get my stainless nozzle bushing so you'll get another 2-3 years out of your old injector block, even these old brass injectors - which they all are.
I'm the only manufacturer I know of making you guys an all stainless injector, the one with the lifetime warranty including free replacement if you ever wear it out.
Good news... this guy's injectors, all three of them are in good shape on the inside...
So he got the stainless nozzle bushing and a Quick Change Adapter. This is the beauty of the Swap Program - you are never down. You've always have a perfectly good injector block ready & waiting, right there in your in your toolbox - and all it takes is a couple of crescent wrenches to swap one out.
So here's his three injectors during the repair. I always take plenty of pictures as I go so I can invoice the guy correctly for the parts needed...
Notice I give you guys an assortment of filters on the ends of your draw Tubes, so next time you can tell me which ones you like best. Hidden behind these filters is the yellow metering tip. I usually provide a few hard plastic washers as backups cuz invariably you'll lose em during the Swap. I do all this work for free so all you pay for is the round trip shipping, about $12, plus parts. Free labor. All so you get one thing right - when your injector fails, you swap it out instead of running down to the supply house with our pants down where you know you're gonna get a good screwin. Like one guy told me, "I've been screwed so many times it don't even hurt anymore."
Well now he's swapping injectors instead of replacing them.
Quiz: There's still a part missing from each of these injectors; two actually; two important parts.
Can you see what it is?
I ran out and will have to go down to Parker in the morning to get some more.
