They just charge you what ever it cost them to send your order standard UPS ground. They don't play the rip-at-ship game. Pack of o-rings may cost up to 4 bucksto ship.

$12.75 total to my door, so I guess it was $3.75 which sounds about right.

So they can handle gas but not WD-40. what in the WD-40 harms them?

I want all the info so I can be ready when I confront the ASE certified mechanic with 30+ years experience that told me to use WD-40

thanks

The post above states some good lubes that are rubber or Viton safe.



With that said, I'd like to vouch for the Viton seals that zombiedog posted. I've been using Viton injector seals as replacements for a few years now with no issues. They're a great cost effective replacement to the overpriced OEM option.


good thread, btw.

I'm not interested in getting into this with you, all I'm going to say is that WD40 stands for water displacement, 40th attempt. When rubber is in contact with it, it dries out and hardens. I don't have the time or desire to find out why, I'll just use grease or oil. They're all on the same shelf in my shop.

It's everyone's choice to either trust me or not.
But if you don't, I won't take any responsibilty for dried seals of any sort.

Still good, both the smaller size and standard size.

Been about 30k since put in.

Slapped these on when I switched my turbo/injector setup about 9 months ago. I'm running modded stock injectors (flowing 840cc). No problems thus far. Two buddies of mine split the pack with me and they're not having any problems either.

Another option is to get your injectors flow and tested and cleaned. For $12 an injector, the company I sent mine to (Cruzin performance) included brand new O-rings and seals, new screens, not to mention the flow testing before and after and ultrasonic cleaning.

hahah this is close to what the company i used to work for does. We order o ring for our oil filters through McMaster-Carr, i believe a bag of 100 is like $7.50 and we sell them for $75 A PIECE!!! and people buy them!! but then again, when they're buying a filter thats $20,000 it might not matter to them as much.

A friend who is an engineer in the pneumatics industry recently confirmed that WD40 is a no-no in most shops that deal with rubber seals, and whatnot. Too bad too, since WD40 is such a wonderful tool.

Yeah I had a torn O-ring on me PE650s and when I replaced it I just smeared alittle bit of motor oil on it with my finger so it would slide into the fuel rail without rolling or tearing..

Im saying use motor oil not wd-40
