    Default 2A5744 injector gasket on D4600

    I bought the 2A5744 injector gasket from florin tractor they were so old brittle and hard that. One came in pieces they are to thick to clamp down the injectors when i tighten them i still get a little play out of them when i wiggle them with a screw driver i even let one sit in oil for awhile to see if it would soften up am i doing somthing wrong or is that the way the injectors are they are tight and there is no up and down movement

    Default Re-hydrating Cork Gaskets

    Hi Team,
    link below shows how steaming the gaskets in a simple vegetable steamer will re-hydrate them to be useful again.
    I would likely then dry the surfaces and oil/grease them before fitment

    Default Injector Gasket

    First thing, buy them from a CAT dealer and they will most likely be newer. Second, ALWAYS soak in HOT WATER for 20 to 30 minutes until they a pliable. Bill Walter
