Default Destination Boulder

I rebuilt the power steering pump too. Missed one o-ring at the very center so it came apart again today - doh. Overall a very easy rebuild though. Just read the FAQ's and go slow. http://forum.ih8mud.com/80-series-te...ent-faq-3.html

Next destination: Boulder.

Looks like your injectors were in pretty good shape before witchhunter...

That's what almost every set I've sent to them went to and came back looking like. Kinda funny. Worth it for the piece of mind though.

What are they actually doing to them? Just pressure/solvent cleaning, or do they actually take them apart and replace components? With the diesels, you can replace the injector tips fairly economically, but that shouldn't happen before gobs of miles. Seems like the gasoline injectors would actually run even cleaner than the diesel since you are essentially pumping filtered solvent through them all the time.

They test as recieved then the ultrasonicly solvent clean them then they retest. Same as the other mail in injector guys. I swear that report card looks the same as several I have got back. Must be a form letter! Last set I got back had one that leaked down overnight. Seems the leakdown test should have spotted that. Not dissing Witchhunter at all....great company, fast and rather inexpensive.

They clean as UB said and also replace the o-ring, seal, tip cover and filter screen.

More progress. This is my motor. I had to be in Boulder this AM and stopped by to see Robbie for a bit.
