Posting here due to the benefit for performance.
Katie and I headed over to FIE (about 15 minutes from me) to help Chris get out from underneath some of his backlog, put a matched set together for PeterG, and re-flow the Zilla'* injectors again for a health checkup.
Katie kept Aleaha occupied for us while we worked ( http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=57008
) and while she napped, Katie went down and had some fun with the horses, goats, and Llama.
All told, we cleaned and tested 24 injectors that JimmyFloyd sent, re-flowed mine, and re-flowed the last 6 that were left in the S1 L67 pool.
Katie playing around on the toy. This sucker does 0-60 in 0.9 seconds, and runs in the 7'* at 180mph. Yup, it has a 'chute:
This is one of Kenny Bernstien'* old 'hats'. Sits on top of the SC on the top fuelies. That bag of injectors in the blue rag to the bottom right are mine. Yup. My injectors hung out with Kenny Bernstien for awhile:
(owned by a customer of FIE, this unit is in for repair/rebuild)
Stripping and removing filters (Chris got hard labor out of me, this is actually quite a tricky process, and is rather tiring after 30 injectors):
Who'* that on FIE'* work board?
Stripping pintle caps. This one is a beauty. This is what you call 'organic deposits'. This injector was fine after cleaning:
'Pool' injectors on the left, awaiting their turn in the recirculating ultrasonic cleaning process. I wire-wheeled all of these and then handed them to Chris, who ran them through the rest of the exterior cleaning in a solvent tank. Zilla'* injectors awaiting their turn on the right:
Injectors running in a recirculating ultrasonic cleaner. This is after stripping and wire-wheeling them:
All injectors are coded and numbered by who donated them and given a serial number. Any member can figure out where theirs came from by figuring it out. These two are obvious:
Flow-testing 8 at a time. These are tested at 80% duty cycle and static (wide open, or 100% duty cycle):
Vid of them running:
Mine before they went this morning:
Vid of my spray pattern before flow-testing:
Peter'* perfect set. 0% spread between all 6 injectors:
IIRC, there are two more sets ready to go now at 0.4% for the Series 1 L67 (a phenomenal low matched number) which could go to 0% easily with another set of 6.. I'll know more numbers shortly when FIE emails me the spreadsheet for the other drivetrain'* pool inventory numbers. Two of today'* new injectors we worked over were DOA. Some of the older pool injectors were also.
All the injectors you see here will get new spacers, pintle caps, filters, and o-rings before they go out the door, not to mention being re-blacked. Peter will take pics of his when he gets them.
