Kinda like when I ask my other farmer buddy when last time he used a crows foot.. Said last time he changed an injector on a tractor.. lol. Guess for certain jobs they are the primary tool of choice. The standard open end version scares me. Brings back "painful" memories..

Did my first set with the crows foot. Then after that I did them by feel with an open end wrench

Having the right tool can make all the difference, though. Looks like that job would've sucked without it.
I'm with you, a 6pt crows foot is most times easier than a wrench anyway.

19mm injector socket like this one:

You can use a 3/4" one, too.


I bought mine from my Mac dealer on my route.

I did them by feel on my LB7 because I couldn't find my crows foot. Usually I use the socket tool like Tom linked.

^^X2 except mine says Snap On



As for the crows feet, I now have 4 sets, 2 each in metric and standard, open end and flare nut.


I end up using them more than you would think because I have them...

I was going to ask that exact question?

I recently came outa a eight year relationship with a 6-Leaker Powerstroke. Actually wore out the valve cover bolts.
So whenever I look at an LB7 a little voice in my head yells RUN!!

I've got a whole Stockholm thing going on with mine. I own 2 LB7s, and my brother has one too. He switched from a 6-leaker LOL

The SAC injectors seem to be the solution. That means I'll have to do one more set in my Suburban one day. They're not as bad as everyone says. But that's just what someone with Stockholm syndrome would say

Thermocoupler extension cables, shielded to top it off. PITA to terminate. One end done.
