• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Lets start with the basic tb.
This style is found on v-6 and v-8 applications. All the information here also applies to some of the 4 cyl tb's that use the same style injector pod.



If you are looking to strip your tb down and do a little cleaning, the injector pod is really easy to remove.

First remove the fuel lines.



Then the fuel line fittings.



Then remove these 3 screws.









But what if we just want to remove the injectors or modify the fuel pressure regulator-fpr to make it adjustable?

Just grab your torx set and remove these screws.



Then gently tap the top with the handle of your driver and it should break loose from the pod.





The little gold can is the fpr!

Now to remove the injectors just place somthing across the pod to support your screwdriver and gently pry up on the center post.
Do not remove the injectors with out having a gasket kit avail to replace the o-rings. There is one at the top and one at the tip of the injector. You have about a 50/50 chance of getting the old o-rings to reseal!

But now that the fpr is removed, it's a good time to make it adjustable.

Here is the fpr and the indicator tab on the side. You can see it is towards the bottom of the slot and there are spring coils showing above it.



Now here's the really tricky part.........

Just grab a pair of pliers and twist the round bottom part of the regulator cw and ccw about 1 turn each. It should now be free enough to turn without too much strain!!



So to increase pressure to your injectors just turn the adjuster ccw till the tab is near the top of the slot.



And to decrease pressure turn it cw and the tab will move to the bottom of the slot.



That's it!!!
Bolt the fpr back on the top of the pod.

Now if you have a thin pair of ignition pliers or needle nose, you can actually adjust it while it's running!







The pressure should only be adjusted after you have logged your blm's and determined you have a lean condition. Adjusting the pressure is simular to changing the jets in a carb!! Or changing the size of the injector.

This mod is good for about a 3-4 psi adjustment.
Max I have gotten is about 15psi with the tab to the top of the slot.

Btw,
this caprice system came with these injectors!!! ;)
