Built to remove the sleeve from the injector without causing damage, this time-saving kit is a productivity enhancer for working on GM medium-duty trucks, the company says.
“Our new IPK1170 pulls the injector straight out of the full length of the nozzle tip without rocking which reduces the possibility of unwanted sleeve removal, saving service technicians a significant amount of time when performing this task,” says Scott Amundson, product manager for Snap-on. “If a sleeve does come out, the forked tool on the puller can be used to gently remove the sleeve from the injector without damage. Thus the sleeve can still be reused, saving both time and money.”
The Snap-on Injector Puller Kit is designed to remove the diesel injectors from GM vehicles produced from 2001 to 2004 with an LB7 Duramax engine. These engines are found in light-duty 2500/3500 and medium-duty 4500/5500 GM trucks, Snap-on says. Over time and miles, the injectors become heavily coated with carbon between the tip and sleeve causing them to stick together, making them difficult to remove.
