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
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.
