I'm curious if there are folks out there that have had long term success using a reconditioned fuel injector. I might need to replace the injectors in my gems 4.0.

The price variance is big enough that I'm would seriously consider using recons if I of course the odds are performance is on par. Thoughts? Opinions? Experience?

When first got my D1 it ran bad, miss fires would not idle I changed and cut open the fuel filter and it was black as coal and all gummy.

I got a set of Ford mustang (rebuilt) ones from a guy that was/is on ebay, and when fitted it ran like a champ. this was eight years ago and tossed the paper work two weeks ago as I sold the D

But I think there is a write up on Roversnet about which ones to get. I can tell you the tops where yellow.

Hope this helps

Ive got some reman injectors in a 4.2 with no issues. I do not recall the manufacturer. I am running the Ford injectors in my Classic. The oil smells like gas after a few miles..

Clay, you can't go too far wrong with a set of 19 lb injectors for a Mustang. I had some in the burn victim that were just fine. I got the O ring kit from Jeg's when I did them. It was cake. Find them all over fleabay from racer boys who take out the perfectly wonderful injection system and put in a Holley.

I replaced my Lucas stock injectors with a set of Bosch 4 hole pattern squirters that I bought off of eBay from that were reconditioned. They made an immediate difference and improvement.

Matthew, was your 90 sorta flooding and having a problem holding idle sometimes? Mine has started to do this and the mpg has started to suck more than usual.

I put a fuel pressure gauge on it and the initial reading is in a good range but if left on for an hour the pressure drops from 30 to 20. I'm assuming this is a faulty injector somewhere.

Clay, rule out all vacuum leaks before getting too far ahead. A vacuum leak can give you all kinds of bother and make you think it's all kinds of stuff going wrong. Check all the fittings and hoses in the air system.

There's a secondary hose on the fuel pump (it's clear/translucent, and looks like an accordion...actually I found a pic below) that as I understand it can develop cracks in it over time, and what will happen is that will allow fuel to leak out and thereby cause a loss of fuel pressure at the rail (probably most likely when it sits for a bit).

Now, not saying that is the issue but *could* be. Have you ever replaced your fuel pump? If so, did you replace with an entire new unit or just the pump itself?
