For future reference these will not fit with the plastic at the bottom not cut off.

I see, thanks. I thought you were talking about actually shortening the thing somehow.

Thanks for that Aidan, I'll remove that plastic bit before shipping in the future.

Sorry for the inconvenience to those who already got theirs.

If anyone messes up an injector when cutting off the plastic bit, tell me what number it was and I'll send you a new one that matches your set.

Wow, random. Is it just me, or is that picture now a pot full of something I wouldn't want to eat?
It definitely used to be a picture of some kick *** injectors in an engine.

-edit- the image is back to normal, must have just been a weird caching thing or something.

Okay people, I've removed a bunch of these plastic bits using pliers, and it is working pretty well for me. This is how I'm doing it:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/g4qfwskyvv...11.31.mov?dl=0
If you take this approach, be super careful, as one little slip and you end up with this:

I'm going to have that one re-flow tested and if it comes back with the same numbers, I'll use it in my car.

Anyone found a slightly lower risk way to do this?

If anyone who bought a set of these injectors from me is not comfortable removing that black piece, I can send you a shipping label to send your injectors back to me and I'll send you a set with the black piece removed.

I used cutters, and cut vertical on the black piece. Did that like 4 times on different sides and the black pieces fell off.

Hint (from experience);

If you have a small soldering iron (and who on this site doesn't) melt a small groove in one part all the way down to metal + put your thumb for leverage behind the plastic and using a small flat blade screwdriver just pop the ring off. No risk of screwing up the pintle.

Nigel, I'd like to buy a set of the injectors and your PNP kit. I live and work in the Sunnyvale area so we can avoid shipping and Paypal if you're open to meeting some time this weekend.

Sounds like a great plan! PMed.

By the way, you are a serious lurker! 3 posts in 8 years? Impressive.
