Question Okay Fellows-How?????

First Happy Easter. How do you remove the plastic injector holder on the 1978 Porsche 924? We know they screw out. But, we cannot get them to budge. (SoCal-looked in all the manuals)

It takes a 14mm allen wrench to take them out and even then most of the times they don't want to move. Last resort is to remove it by breaking it into small pieces. Make sure none of it falls into the head.

Thanks, we took an old injector and on the opposite end of the hex welded a nut which with a rachet it still didn't want to move. And, what you suggested was what we was thinking about doing. How can you keep small pieces from falling in? Do you shop vac them out? All your sugggestions will be helpful. I was hoping there was some sort of solvent to use. Thanks, again.

Stuff the hole with a paper towel or rag and then use a knife or sharp screw driver and drive it down the side and split the insert into 2 pieces. Shop vac as much as possible and try to keep as much out of there as possible.

Make sure not to score or mame the threads that are in the injector socket or you will be re-tapping them in order to install a new fitting.
