    Default diesel engine injectors

    Hi all

    I need to replace the injector nozzles on my XD2S. Can anyone please tell me:
    • how to identify what injectors are in the engine
    • and therefore what nozzles I need to obtain?
    • recommended places to purchase said nozzles
    • is the replacement a DIY job


    Thanks in advance for all your help

    Cheers

    Sorry I dont know much about diesels - but, I have noticed new injector nozzles for sale on eBay (US site) under Mercedes - & some ads say that these injectors also suit Peugeot!!! So if your lucky you may be able to get new stuff real cheap from US. I would start googling to see if your engine uses the same Bosch parts as Mercedes. Good luck.
    So many projects - so little time.

    Try a diesel injection specialist such as Cooma Diesel in Canberra. They will do the job for about 600$ which includes recalibrating the pump, before and after dyno testing, and as a biiiig bonus they know what they are doing. Some people also swear by Berrima Diesel, but for me Dave Webster at Cooma Diesel is the only one to touch my fuel injection work. Ring them and talk to them, I am sure you will come away impressed.

    Thanks for the info, Neil.

    When I had my engine rebuilt, I had the injection pump overhauled completely (and calibrated, too), as well as the the turbo serviced etc.

    It seems that the only thing that wasn't even considered was the injectors themselves. I didn't know of the potential damage, but my 'mechanic' should have known. The joys of living in the bush

    I'll guess that you don't think that doing the injectors yourself is a DIY job, eh?

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    It's not too difficult to remove and replace them yourself if you've got the right size spanner. Don't remember the size. A dirty big ring/open-ender, or a deep socket or strong tube spanner. I've removed them before on a couple of 505s either for cleaning and testing or replacement.

    The main thing is not to damage the end and to use new seals (washers). The trickiest part is purging the air after reinstallation. That's when you discover air leaks in the system or your filter priming diaphragm decides to crack.

    If you need a scan of the manual page, just say so.

    Good luck,
    Warwick.
