    Need a little help, As I feared after pulling the injectors and having them cleaned the #1 now spits back past the injector looks like new o-rings. Does anyone know what size they are? I will start searching threads in the meantime. Btw I dont think corona can infect you if you are crusing at 60mph+

    Update, new regulator, fuel pump and cleaned injectors. She lives, but it sounds like the front cylinder is spitting pressure back

    Injectors, clean or replace

    So I pulled the injectors and had them cleaned, ordered a new regulator do to the fact that at 6 psi it was dumping presure back into the tank. That gave me a chac=nce to clean the tank out. I should have the new regulator in a couple of days, I will keep you posted on the outcome. I do have a...

    Injectors, clean or replace

    So I pulled the injectors actually not that big of a deal, once all the air plenums are out, getting to the rail was not a big deal, the toughest part is the farthest rear screw requires a right angle driver and that the stupid Allen bolts that hold one of the plenums are non ferrous so the...

    Ya the 05 r3 I'm working on is looking for 40-45 psi, pump makes that but the regulator was dumping it back into the tank giving me maybe 6psi at the rail.

    Injectors, clean or replace

    Good call, I just looked it up nominal fuel pressure is 3.0 bar or 43 lbs psi. Think i might have found the problem, i think i've got a high pressure pump and regulator I can pull to test. Will keep you posted. Thanks

    Yes to pulling the tank, my hope when pulling the rail was that it was full of bad fuel, wasn't sure how long it would take to push all that bad fuel through the injector. I'm apprehensive to break any seal that's 15 years old, it just means waiting for said seal to arrive and the crazy cost to...
