    Very little coolant was lost with the removal of the cross-over pipe.

    The throttle body needs to be rotated slightly to R&R. Justin will better remember the technique.
    Cheers. Yes Iíve had to replace my throttle body which also cracked / split so have that in hand. Ok well I placed the order for the parts last night so I guess Iíll be having a crack sometime in the coming weeks. Thanks for the advice.

    Best of luck, Iím sure with perseverance and patience you will get it done. Sounds like youíve done the research and got all the right parts. Thereís also plenty of support here.

    cheers

    Started tonight. Oh this is going to be ďfunĒ is an understatement. I can see why some have avoided replacing the balance pipe and pump feed pipe because theyíre literally impossible to get out. The pump pipe, undoing off the pump will be a challenge

    Justin and I were puzzled for some minutes too before discovering the trick. Being plastic we didn't want to force anything.

    3 litre inlet manifold crack problems

    Minutes? I wish. I think I stared and googled for an hour lol.

    So manifold in (hopefully rear edge of gasket is seated ok - was a tight squeeze getting it in with me only partially releasing the timing cover (two bolts underneath it).
    Tight squeeze getting injector six (rearward) in place.
    No comment on the impossible HP rail feed. Clearly need a special spanner for that fitting. New injector kits went in easily.
    Left tomorrow with coolant crossover, EGR, throttle body, fan, aux belt, and then I think Iím done.
    Then Iíll find out what I ****ed up 3 litre inlet manifold crack problems

    I was going to post the trick to releasing them, but before I started typing you put this up - I think we discovered it by fiddling as I could not find anything online, and the WSM was of no use.

    Hey DJ,

    best of luck, Iím sure it will be fine. I know the feeling though. the feeling of accomplishment when it all works out is worth all effort.

    BTW, whats involved with the new injector kit? Is that just new pipes, clamps and o rings? Do you have to re-educate the ecu if you remove the injectors?

    Would be interested
