      I seem to get lots of help in the cabby threads, so I Posted this here.

      Last week I posted here trying to get some air shrouds for some nice new brass injectors I won on ebay. You may have seen my post in the 8v, cabby parts classifieds and here in the cabby forum.

      Well I purchased four shrouds from a vortexer and one is not quite like the others; the groove for the "o" ring is much bigger, obviously for a much bigger injector holder. I'm still waiting on a response from the seller, so here is a couple of blurry pics:




      What vehicle is this injector air shroud on the left from??


      Sorry for the blurry pics and the crusty carbon on the shrouds.

      So today I got to cleaning the air shrouds that had been soaking in B-12 a couple day. Cleaned the carbon off with a rag, damp with B-12 and they wiped amazingly clean.
      Got the opportunity to get a good look at the weird shroud with out the carbon. It is indeed the same air shroud as the other three!

      I guess I owe shaggymutt1 at least half an apology...

      The air shroud is two pieces, it has a little hoop with a ledge pressed on to hold the o ring in place... and this one must of got buggered up getting pulled off. The thing may even be able to be fixed if someone was skilled with a tiny press.

      Not me, I was sent a free one by some anonymous vortexer, I assume.


      So, this solves the mystery of the odd ball air shroud.

      Dude I just looked it is 2 piece!! The lower is pressed up to form oring area. What if you take socket that fits over and install oring and lightly hammer it back down?

      I told you so, I told you so.

      Atleast everything is sorted out now...

      I was able to pound mine down by using a box end wrench or whatever they call it. Also setting it in vice grips that are open just enough.
