This is more like a question to the grand wizards , than answer. Just by=
chance I was testing a bucket full of old 130 bar injectors yesterday. On=
e was stuck closed , and the pressure on the gauge was way more than 3000 p=
si . Question : If an injector fails to open when engine is running , what =
The lines break from vibration not over pressure.---Lines are probably good=
for astronomical pressure. Way beyond 10 000 psi. Solution to T=
yson Craggs dilemma : remove injector and clean and test or simply replace=
, and blow lines before installing.
If an injector is stuck OPEN now that is way worse as far as engine damage=
is concerned. On a GM V8 it sounds like banging alright LOL with a BIG h=
ammer. I had to be towed home. The minute you hear banging like that " =
fuel knock " stop engine. It can kill a Rabbit in short order.Only "Real" d=
iesels are designed for that kind of punishment . Hagar.
