Default 6.0 Injector hold down tool

Hey Fellas,

What specific tool are you using to tighten and remove the injector hold downs. Going to pull my injectors this winter and canít remember the size torx or length that works best.

Thanks!

SnapOn makes a specific length T40 for this job. I can get you the part number this evening.
Or you can take a generic, long T40 and cut it to the correct length.
My experience has been, that the end will break on the generic ones on about the 3rd set of injectors you torque. I’ve broken 1 SnapOn in 5 years, and there’s no telling how many injectors I torqued with it. The SnapOn one is only about $40.

SnapOn part number S6340E

If you want to build your own, you need 2Ē of shaft below the head.

I actually found the "correct" snap on one to be a little long for use on 5 and 7, ended up buying a Mac one, and cutting it to just above the top of the injector. Its about 1/4-1/2 in shorter than the snap on one, (just guessing, never measured) and seems to work better in my opinion. Its also a 5/16 bit instead of 1/4. Ive broken a couple, but it typically wasnt from pulling injectors. A 3/8 gun or possibly a 1/2 in at times have been used on yhese sockets, as its the same size on ecoboost turbo hardware somewhere...

I will agree that 5 and 7 can be a tight fit with the SnapOn.
Good to know Mac makes one also.
I have a generic one (doesnít cost much if I donít get it back) that I loan guys that are doing injectors. I swap it for a new one every couple sets. I just measured it and the shaft is 1.750Ē long and the head is very close to the top of the injector.


I canít imagine you abusing a tool.....

Some of the cheaper bits actually "twist" a little in the socket. Hard to get a true torque that way. Best to buy a quality one in this application!

Another option (expensive though):

That looks to be a set of t-40 and t-45.

I remember the last time I pulled my injectors, the bit I used, did twist. I tossed it after that fearing it was going to break. I never replaced it. Appears to be plenty of options out there. Thanks guys.

When you scroll down - At the bottom of the (linked) page are links to the individual T40 or T45
