    To avoid injury from fire caused by heated diesel-fuel vapors:‪

    • Keep those people who are not directly involved in servicing away from the engine.
    • Stop the engine immediately if a fuel leak is detected.
    • Do not smoke or allow open flames when working on an operating engine.
    • Wear adequate protective clothing (face shield, insulated gloves and apron, etc.).
    • To prevent a buildup of potentially volatile vapors, keep the engine area well ventilated during operation.
  2. Using the injection line socket J 46371 , loosen the injection line nuts at the pressure pipe and at the injector unit pump.

    Note: When removing the injection lines, the pressure pipe thrust bolt must be held in place.


    Do not crimp or nick the injection line tubing. Overbending the tubing can close the passage or restrict the flow of fuel. Nicks can cause weak spots that could lead to injection line failure.‪

  3. Carefully remove the injection line from the engine.

Section 2.2.2
Fuel Injection Line Installation

Install fuel injection lines as follows:‪


New injection lines are supplied ready for installation. If the flared cone ends of the line do not line up with the injection nozzle and injection pump fittings, carefully bend the line by hand for a proper fit. Never use pliers or sharp-edged tools to bend injection lines. Doing so could damage them. Injection lines should fit without tension over the injection nozzle and pump fittings.‪

  1. Position the flared cone ends over the pressure pipe end and at the injection pump fittings; then install the injector line nuts finger-tight.
  2. Using the injection line socket J 46371 , tighten the injection line nuts 25 N·m (18 lb·ft) at the pressure pipe and at the unit injector pump.
  3. Bleed the fuel system.


    To avoid injury before starting and running the engine, ensure the vehicle is parked on a level surface, parking brake is set, and the wheels are blocked.‪



    Diesel engine exhaust and some of its constituents are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.‪

    • Always start and operate an engine in a well ventilated area.
    • If operating an engine in an enclosed area, vent the exhaust to the outside.
    • Do not modify or tamper with the exhaust system or emission control system.
  4. Run the engine and check for leaks. Tighten the connections as needed.
  5. Install the engine trim panel. Tighten the hex bolts firmly.
