c. Hold the quick connector (1) while pushing in tabs (F), and pull out the hard tube (A).

(2) : Retainer

(B) : Connection (crosssection)

(C) : Resin tube

(D) : To under floor fuel line

(E) : To fuel tank

(G) : Disconnection

CAUTION:

  • Inserting quick connector release hard will not disconnect quick connector. Hold quick connector release where it contacts and goes no further.
  • The tube can be removed when the tabs are completely depressed. Do not twist it more than necessary.
  • Do not use any tools to remove the quick connector.
  • Keep the resin tube away from heat. Be especially careful when welding near the tube.
  • Prevent acid such as battery electrolyte etc. from getting on the resin tube.
  • Do not bend or twist the tube during installation and removal.
  • Remove the remaining retainer only when the tube is replaced.
  • When the tube is replaced, also replace the retainer.

Fuel injector and fuel tube

  1. Remove fuel injector from fuel tube:

a. Open and remove clip (1).

b. Remove fuel injectors (3) and (4) from fuel tube (2) by pulling straight out.

CAUTION:

  • Be careful with remaining fuel that may leak from fuel tube.
  • Be careful not to damage fuel injector nozzle during removal.
  • Do not bump or drop fuel injector.
  • Do not disassemble fuel injector.
  • Do not reuse Orings.

INSTALLATION

CAUTION:

Do not reuse Orings.

1. Note the following, and install new Orings on the fuel injector.

CAUTION:

  • Upper and lower Orings are different. Be careful not to interchange them.

Fuel tube side : Black Nozzle side : Green

  • Handle Oring with bare hands. Do not wear gloves.
  • Lubricate Oring with new engine oil.
  • Do not clean Oring with solvent.
  • Check that Oring and its mating part are free of foreign material.
  • When installing Oring, be careful not to scratch it.
  • Do not twist or stretch Oring. If Oring was stretched while it was being attached, allow it to retract before inserting it into fuel tube.
  • Insert Oring straight into fuel tube. Do not angle or twist it.

2. Install fuel injector (4) to fuel tube (1):

a. Insert new clip (2) into clip groove (G) on fuel injector (4).

  • Insert new clip (2) so that protrusion (F) of fuel injector matches cutout (D) of clip.

(3) : Oring (black) (5) : Oring (green)

CAUTION:

  • Do not reuse clip. Replace it with a new one.
  • Be careful to keep clip from interfering with Oring. If interference occurs, replace Oring.

b. Insert fuel injector (4) into fuel tube (1) with clip (2) attached.

  • Insert fuel injector (4) while matching it to the axial center.
  • Insert fuel injector (4) so that protrusion (B) of fuel tube matches cutout (C) of clip (2).
  • Check that fuel tube flange (A) is securely located in flange groove (E) on clip (2).

c. Check that installation is complete by checking that fuel injector (4) does not rotate or come off.

3. Set fuel tube and fuel injector assembly in position for installation on cylinder head.

CAUTION:

For installation, be careful not to interfere with fuel injector nozzle.

  • Tighten bolts in numerical order as shown.

5. Connect harness connector to fuel injector.

6. Connect fuel feed tube (engine side):

    a. Check for damage or foreign material on the fuel tube and quick connector.

    b. Apply new engine oil lightly to area around the top of fuel tube.

    c. Align center to insert quick connector straight into fuel tube.

  • Insert quick connector (1) to fuel tube until the top spool (C) on fuel tube is inserted completely and the 2nd level spool (D) is positioned slightly below quick connector bottom end.

(B) : Upright insertion

(E) : Correctly connected

CAUTION:

  • Hold in position (A) as shown when inserting fuel tube into quick connector.

  • Carefully align center to avoid inclined insertion to prevent damage to Oring inside quick connector.

  • Insert until you hear a "click" sound and actually feel the engagement.

    d. To avoid misidentification of engagement with a similar sound, pull quick connector hard by hand. Check it is completely engaged (connected) so that it does not come out from fuel tube.

    e. Install quick connector cap (engine side) (1) to quick connector connection.

  • Install quick connector cap (engine side) (1) with the side arrow facing quick connector side (fuel feed tube side) as shown.

CAUTION:

  • Check that the quick connector and fuel tube are securely engaged with the quick connector cap (engine side) groove.

  • If the quick connector cap (engine side) cannot be installed easily the quick connector may not be connected correctly. Remove and reconnect.

     f. Install fuel feed hose to hose clamp.

7. Connect fuel feed tube (floor piping side):

    a. Check the connection for damage or any foreign materials.

    b. Align the quick connector with the tube, then insert the connector straight into the centralized under floor piping until a click is heard.

    c. After connecting, check that the connection is secure:

  • Visually confirm that the two retainer tabs are connected to the connector.

  • With the fuel feed hose not fixed to the clamp, pull quick connector (A) hard by hand to check that the quick connector (A) is not disconnected from the centralized underfloor piping (1) and that the quick connector (1) is securely connected.

8. Install remaining parts in the reverse order of removal.

INSPECTION AFTER INSTALLATION

Check on Fuel Leaks

1. Turn ignition switch ON with the engine stopped. Ensure there are no fuel leaks at fuel pipe connection points.

NOTE:

Use mirrors for checking points out of clear sight.

2. Start the engine and increase engine speed. Check again that there are no fuel leaks.

CAUTION:

Do not touch the engine immediately after stopped, as the engine becomes extremely hot.
