This is a multi-part message in MIME format. -- [ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ] Thanks to you fellas ---Hagar now fully understand --The need to change he= atshields---every time an injector is installed. And how thin the metal on= the HEAD is ---around the injector (Thread) ----make sure to use pr= oper tool T bar or impactwrench. -----Thanks again. PS: I got 4 N= EW shields----dimple is it. That was then --- look at me know --- many many shields later. Now I redimple using a small socket and a big ballbearing ball and squeeze carefully in a press or vise. Then , when the Rabbits is fully "TUNED" I install brand new shields. It was surprising how brittle some of the shields were ---- maybe a special alloy. Use a new one as a comparison , to avoid dimpling too much ---- inspect for cracks before using. I use a meat skewer stick to make sure they end up right side up --- works like a charm. The skewer will pick up glowplug nuts from black hole , as well. Hagar.
