NOTE: It is important that three new o-rings be installed and oriented correctly on each injector when installing them.

Install three new o-rings on each injector. Do
not twist the o-rings.

Part Number Location Color Code
3070136 Top Red

Lubricate the o-rings with clean 15W-40 lubricating oil just before installation.

SMALL | MEDIUM | LARGE
   


 CAUTION 

Do not drive the injector in by striking the solenoid valve area. This can damage the solenoid or cause the injector to be out of alignment in the bore which will result in o-ring damage.

Place the injector in the cylinder head injector bore with the injector solenoid valve toward the intake port. Align the injector equally between the valve springs.

Use Injector Puller/Installer service tool, Part Number 3823579, to seat the injector in the bore.

SMALL | MEDIUM | LARGE
   


 CAUTION 

The injector must be fully seated before installing the hold down clamp. The hold down clamp can not pull the injector into the bore. Engine damage can occur if the injector is not fully seated.

Install the injector hold down clamp capscrew.

Torque Value:  75  n.m  [55 ft-lb]

Connect the injector wires. Make sure the wires are connected to the same cylinder they were removed from.
