Default Where to buy injector parts?

I need to buy pintel caps and o-rings for these rx7 injectors I got. Where can I buy em? Locally I have Strauss and Autozone. If they don't got em then online would be the last resort.

You can get the orings locally for sure though.
Why not just get them serviced, very unlike you to skimp. They will replace caps, orings, and screens as well.

send them to be serviced. $15/ea with new rubber included. I wouldn't run injectors w/ busted or missing pintle caps w/o testing them first.

you can pick up the parts anywhere however....screens, pintle caps, and o-rings are common parts.

Screens are removable by us?

Anywhere is where? Online?

They look really clean aside from the dust, he said the pintel caps and orings were scavenged for other injectors.

I got these from a guy on another forum. He is a respected dude on thereand he told me they were cleaned and serviced 500 miles ago before they were pulled to make room for larger injectors on an RX7.

They are a bit dusty though.

Ill take some pics tonight and you can be the judge.

if you trust him then you should be fine...o-rings, anywhere, make sure you lube them when installing, otherwise, fuel leaks are inevitable

I wouldn't trust it for ****. Send them to get tested and serviced. You'll spend the same (or more) buying the rubber parts locally.

If they were recently serviced, the guy's a douche for savaging the caps.

They were serviced a while ago, and have 500 miles on them since the service. They were laying around a while and people who work with him scavenged the caps. They need the gromets, o-rings, and pintel caps. Will witch hunter replace all of that with there service?
