I am constantly amazed at the number of people/companies that are either advising customers to smash injectors and cam covers to pieces to allow cylinder heads to be removed or stating new engine required.
there are other options out there............
i am also surprised at the number of people who state they have never had a seized injector !!
I have now done over 3000 seized injector removals in the last two years all over the UK, using the correct tools for the job makes all the difference.
cheap slide hammers and pullers off the likes of ebay are only any good if the injectors are already loose
large companies wouldn't manufacture hydraulic pullers to remove seized injectors if the problem didn't exist (you only have to search the net for your answer)
Fiat, citroen, renault, vauxhaul, peugeot, mercededs, landrover, etc etc etc all suffer from seized injectors
solvents, easing oils, carbon disolvers are only any good if it gets to the problem which on many engines it doesn't
take my advice........use the proper tool for the job or get someone in like me who has the proper tools to do it and save your customers the expense of a new engine or cylinder head
wasting hour upon hour trying to remove a seized injector with a tiny slide hammer or spending days making tools is not cost effective, it may sometimes work but at what price, did you charge out every hour spent on the last job you did ???????
I've spent thousands of pounds with BBA to get the correct tools for diagnostic work and it's been money well spent
the correct tool for the job always wins out (and the expierience and training to use it correctly of course)
