injector rebuilding, tool

So, I think it's time to check my injectors. Can someone point me towards some good information on how to do this. Also, where can I get the pop tool required to check the opening, spray pattern etc.?

I've seen this on eBay. Is this the tool?

diesel fuel injectors

Hi, just had yesterday my 5 injectors clean by ultra sound, tested pressure reset, paid about US$ 90 for this . Somewhere sticking and on some pressure was off. When you buy the set-up on ebay you will also need a collection of the washers which determine the release pressure. You probably can get the spray pattern checked for a couple of bucks at a MB or VW garage.

Yes, that is one way.....

If you do a search for "build injector tester" there are also a couple of home-made testers that members have made. One is made from a converted bottle jack and another uses a grease gun. All are designed the same as the one on e-bay, that you mentioned, and use the "homemade" items to apply the pressure.

Other ideas for those who like to tinker.
