Default Rebuilding Injectors

Could rebuilding fuel injectors be a DIY Job without expensive equipment? If not is there anyone here on the forum that rebuilds injectors?

That is a HUGE no. I've done most of the sets for members here with FIE in person. Nobody here could come close to half the quality and accuracy for $5k spent in equipment.

I have 12 rochester injectors, but I don't know if they'll fit in a 92 bonneville. Would they?

Pics of the injectors? What did you get them out of? Any numbers on them?

There are many rochester injectors used on GM vehicles, we will need more info.

If they are rochesters out of a Bonneville, they're from a 95 L36 and will not work for you.

Don't say that..Dam I pulled 12 of them from the junkyard. So the 92 uses the injectors thats more narrow at the tip right? There'* a RP on the top side and w27 on the other side. As a matter of fact I'll post a pic soon.

Those are all 21Lb Rochesters iirc... But they run at pressures from 48-55 psi as opposed tot he L27'* 41-47 PSI... Not sure how that would affect spray pattern and flow
