Subject: Fuel Injector 'Doughnut' installation
I am currently replacing the injector sleeves and o-rings on my '88 80q (NG
motor) and I remember reading here once that you could use very hot water
to soften up the really tight green 'doughnut' o-rings that go on the top of
the injector. Is that true? The Bentleys says to lubricate before
installation but that is all.
--Soak the green doughnut seals in gasoline for a few minutes.
--Cut a tapered plastic nozzle from the end of a tube of caulking(silicone, bathroom, etc.) so that its widest end will fit over the cap(non threaded) end of the injector.
--insert the injector into the plastic nozzle and slide the green seal up the nozzle and onto the injector. This takes a try or two, but works fine.
--slide the green seal into place on the injector.
