I like the way you covered everything around it up. What did you use for the "standoff" that supported the flat plate?

Just like in the video, six E10 sockets and six inch extensions. The sockets are sitting on the head cover bolts.

It was the only option we had left. #1 would not come out any other way. All the others came out very easily, even with my homemade puller (and slide hammer) made from a used injector clamp.

Thanks. I typically don't watch video on the computer because the service is so slow. It is a long way to town.

If you were going to be doing this job weekly you could drill plate and use all thread (and a couple nuts) with the socket welded to end of it.

The first time I pulled an injector on one of these using a puller made in China I took a chunk of al out of the valve cover. The made in China puller needed to be modified that I picked up on after the fact.

Jeremy had to grind the sides of the puller he ordered, for it to fit into the cavity of the head cover.

Yes that seems like an easier way to do it, and with less equipment. I could see gluing magnets in the end of the extensions to hold the metal plate. With several holes in the plate, the threaded rod could be used for two or more injectors before being moved.

UPDATE:

My friend got fed up with this car, as it had a brake light problem that he could not fix as well as a couple other issues. He offered the car to me, and I bought it for his original price of $1,500. It had some back DMV fees that needed to be paid, but not a deal-breaker. I was able to get a rear SAM from my local wrecking yard for $35, and now the brake lights work. The car needed a LOT of cleaning, as it was very neglected. I spent an afternoon cleaning the interior, and it looks presentable now. It may become a donor for my E320 wagon engine swap project Feasability?- CDI drivetrain swapped into E320 wagon if I get tired of it, and if the swap is doable.
