Re: pinging diesel motor
The cheapest, fastest, simplest thing to try first is to loosen one of the injector nuts so that cylinder is not firing. Rev up the engine and listen for ping. If the ping is still there tighten that injector and loosen the otherer one and try again.
If this makes the ping go away all you need is an injector rebuild at about $85.00 each.
Have lots of paper towel for diesel spray from the loosened injector.
The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
