    Injector service

    RPM in Lauderdale is highly recommended but my local mechanic normally sends his stuff to Pinellas Diesel. 8-92's and need to replace all tips plus maybe more. My mechanic will send them to whoever I want. Anyone have experience with Pinellas Diesel?

    I would prefer to have my mechanic work with a shop he is familiar with and comfortable with. But don't want to do this if it really matters a lot and RPM is the place that should be used.

    Thanks for any info.

    May I inject a thought, ensure your injectors are rebuilt (Not just replaced) and popped at the shop to ensure even performance in them all.

    I do lean to use your tech's shop. If any issue, he may have some more clout there than a cold customer.
    Now, If your tech's shop don't pop & match them (ultimate testing), Then I would find another shop that does.

    Watch out for that Derek Avenger guy. Everything I send to him comes back right.

    I agree with Robert. Derek does great work. You'll get the attention to detail that you would expect.

    You guys are the best, Thank you.

    Why do we suddenly feel the need to replace "all the tips?" At least your port engine has a fairly fresh set of matched injectors in it. Did you run some junk through them or something?

    Avenger, if you go to boatdiesel Detroit forum you can read my original post and conversation with Mr. Sparks. It will fill you in to the whole conversation. What is the name of your company and where are you located?

    Can you provide a link? It's not apparent on the forum page and I gave up my membership quite a while ago. Let's just say while I think there are some really good people there, nothing justifies the price.
