300 tdi injector replacement

today I received the 4 injectors that I ordered from Paddock Spares in the UK. They neglected to send the copper sealing washers that I requested and paid for. I was planning on changing the injectors this weekend to get the truck back on the road.
So, my question is does anyone know of a US source for equivalent washers? any auto parts store, Home Depot, whatever. I know I can get them from RDS or Rovers North but I was hoping I could source locally and still do the job this weekend.

Give Diesel Injection & Electric Forest Park a call. I'd be surprised if they didn't have something that would fit.
(404)361-2222 I don't think they are open on Saturday though.

Speaking of injectors, is there some trick to remove a copper washer that remains stuck on its seat?

I've always replaced them, so no idea.

if the washers are stuck (and on my 200tdi, I had one really stuck) - Rost Off or Krell and then tap lightly on one corner with a punch.

the copper washers are a 1 time use only. they crush to seal and that makes them nfg for reuse.

got the injectors replaced after a bit of tug o war with some seriously stuck injectors. no smoke and better power, however it now idles high at 1500-1600 RPM's, don't know what caused that or how to change it. How does one adjust the idle speed and why would it change after replacing the injectors?
