[DML] Re: Possibly dropped copper washer from fuel line into engine cylinder



Dani,

I know that the washer could fit in the opening where the injector 
seat enters, but you think that the hole narrows to the width of the 
injector itself???  If this is the case, and I'll have to check to 
see if the washer is wider than this, then I should be able to see 
the washer looking into the opening and pluck it out.  I didn't see 
it when I shown a flashlight down, but will take a closer look.

Thanks.  If this is the case, you just made my day Dani!

Paul
