In Topic: What to do?????

Today, 02:59 AM

Welcome to the new religion. You can get away with very little mods other than a change and relocate of the fuel pump. The rest is a full inspection and diagnoses to make sure everything is up to par and running right. If more than 5% of the time/effort is spent to read-up on mods, and less than 95% on learning about the engine, then that spells trouble. The 1000 SDI was once a magnet for those with a quench to solve design issues. If that is the case than I suggest to quit while you are ahead, because it isn't that easy. I think a prerequisite to making any mods should be to learn how to inspect and diagnose a 1K within the original design of that model year. For instance, how to get a 1K to warm-up without fouling plugs on any of the calibration files (maps).

Cap the extra pulse line. While you are there, it is worth following the shop manual test procedure for the manifold unit and the oil check valves.

Use a timing light to diagnose the ignition. It will be easier than extending your neck around sled, and easier to see a light pointed at you than a tiny spark 6 feet away.

The only way is to extend the piece that needs to be longer and get it tig welded.

Could it be that working on the injectors wiggled the portion of wires coming out of the injectors enough to make good contact?
