Injector fitting size

Postby Rjonesy » Sat Aug 12, 2017 4:23 pm

I have been devouring this forum like a maniac since securing my Pup. Wanting to get it running as efficiently as possible. I am currently converting the pump from an old little floor jack to serve as a pop off pressure tester for my injectors. Wanting to get it set up before I pull the injectors. Can someone tell me the fitting size of the injectors so I can avoid pulling one to match threads?

Thanks

Bob

If you're asking about what size wrench takes the steel injector lines loose, I think it's a 17mm. I don't know what size it take to remove the injectors themselves

I think he needs to know what size fitting to use with his tester.

Ya. I wanted to know the thread sizing for the connections from the fuel pump. I'm not real experienced with metric tubing connections.

The injector line fittings are 12mm x 1.5mm pitch.

Will an old injector line off a Mercedes diesel fit for using with a pop tester?
