After checking resistance at approx 1.3 ohms, I took them out and checked the visual test.
Good news is they burn nice and hot
Bad news is I have three glow plugs coming, AND they are the wrong style based off the internet search. Sure learned a lesson there.
well, we pop checked all three injectors. Based off the patterns, only one was atomizing the fuel correctly, the others were either strait stream or a clogged sprinkler pattern. The engine is getting flooded with fuel. So, Im guessing I will be getting a local shop, industrial injectors to rebuild them for me at around 50 each.
I have a video of one of them, stream pattern.
popping pressure was around 1750 psi, but specs read 1992 psi. regardless, they are all getting rebuilt. Now I just have to figure out what type/brand they are.
Also, I checked the compression from the glow plug hole. Heres what I found out.
#1 330 psi
#2 190 psi ( added some oil, then came out at 290)
#3 330 psi.
Specs say 413-445psi.
Looks like I need new rings. But im also hoping that due to the bad injectors, im getting washed out and therefore loosing compression due to rings not seating properly in the cylinders. So, if I get my injectors rebuilt, that will cut back on the fuel consumption ADD allow for more return to the tank.
After that, rings will come into play around april.
