Re: Injector Removal- Yanmar Engines

For metal injector fuel lines, I've been told to replace them as well, if the injectors have been serviced a few times. Certainly, not necessary every time. After they've been removed and replaced several times, I understand the flex can be an issue.

That may have been model specific advice from years ago, but you might want to check.

Re: Injector Removal- Yanmar Engines

Don't know if you've solved your original issue of injector removal..but a trick that I've learned if the injector is slightly difficult to remove is to use the engine's compression. Be careful and use a heavy rag over the suspected injector as it may fly like a champagne cork but with considerable mass. The O-ring is nothing more then a dust/debris preventer. Also check the pre chambers for wear..should be easy to pull out with a hooked type instrument/tool.

Ok, thanks. I will leave the injectors in place for now. Everything is running well, so I will leave it that way. Good to know how to take them out for when the time comes.
