Bryce Injector Problem
« on: February 14, 2018, 08:42:08 PM »
Hi Guys
I hope this is in the right section. I have a Lister LR1 with a Bryce injector. The threads on the leakoff union are worn and the nut wont tighten. The union has no hex part or any obvious way to remove it. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks

Injector union normally steel and of quite good quality, The nut and leak-off line copper and brass - designed to wear out first. Look there before jumping to replacement of injector body.

The end of the threaded union has very shallow threads I have no idea how it happened. Can the union be unscrewed from the injector? The nut fits and tightens on a massey 35 injector and the union unscrews from that injector. I don't really want to replace the injector as it works well I just want to repair it

I brought the injector to a diesel engineer, he said someone had used vice grips on the return pipe probably when trying to pull the injector. He reckons he can drill the outlet and fit a pipe and seal it so I will update if and when he does it, Many thanks Gman!

Unlike the CAV equivalent item the leak off connection is integral with the body of the injector. If you don't get a suitable resolution, then PM me as I have one of the Bryce injectors available.
