I offered some useful information in a spirit of helping out. If you put your old injectors back in you will need washers.

I got my injectors rebuilt by a gentleman in Wisconsin for $25 each including washers plus the cost of mailing. I sent my old ones in and he sent me 6 rebuilds. He specialized in combines but I can't remember his coordinates.

Just a question about the annealing part.

I imagine the use of the copper washers are because they compress and are able to withstand the combustion pressure. Does annealing them cause them to fatten (soften) back up so they are soft enough to re-compress?

I ask because I simply reused my washer when I took all my injectors out to soak them in seafoam. Possible not the best way to do it, but she runs like a top.

Bomac priced the lines separately when I called. ebay has "complete sets" of lines. the pics dont show any injectors.
Yeah sorry, didn't mean for the second question mark....I know the lines are separate. Someone seemed to insinuate they are automatically replaced or come with a set of injectors.

I would guess the $750 would be for 6 without cores, with cores, 6 at $75 would only be $450...sounds about right.

Yes it softens them right up.

There are some good you tube clips on it.

First time I saw it done was for aircraft spark plug washers.

Oh, I misunderstood the OP.

I thought he was talking about an Ejection Seat. I figured I could always use that.
