2003-2010 Ford 6.0LPowerstroke Diesel High Pressure Oil Rail Ball Tube Removal Socket – Specialty Tool
This tool is a must for replacing High Pressure Oil Rail Ball Tubes on 6.0L diesel engines!!!!!
***************If you are experiencing failure of the high pressure oil inlet o-ring then chances are that your ball tube o-ring seals have gone bad. Instead of replacing the entire oil rail at an incredibly high expense, use this special socket to remove the oil ball tubes and replace the o-rings at a fraction of the cost
Made from high strength steel and Zinc plated
Our ball tube removal tool is significantly beefier than most other tools found on the market to withstand the extreme forces sometimes required to loosen the retaining nuts. One of the key features is that it fits directly onto a 1/2 inch drive tool - no socket required. (Many competitive tools require a 23mm socket which is an unusual size not included in many socket sets.) Eliminating the extra looseness between a socket and the tool itself makes impact tools much more effective.
Are you experiencing repeat failure of the high pressure oil inlet o-ring on 6.0L injectors? The often-overlooked cause of this problem is the ball tube o-ring in the high pressure oil rail. If close examination of the failed injector seal indicates that it was eroded from the top to the bottom, then the root cause is in the high pressure oil rail. Until recently, this rail was not a serviceable part and required replacement as an assembly at great expense. We now have the parts and tools available to correctly perform this repair and prevent costly comebacks.
Any time the valve covers are removed from a 6.0L engine you should check the oil rails for leaks. This can be done by removing the ICP sensor and pressurizing the system with shop air. You will need to command the IPR valve closed with a scan tool in order to build pressure in the system. Frequently you will find leaks between the ball tube and the oil rail. If there is a leak at one ball tube it is probably wise to replace them all. Even if you do not find any leaks during air testing, it is wise to closely inspect the nipple portion of the ball tube where it inserts into the fuel injector. Even the slightest surface imperfections here are not acceptable. Since pressure in the high pressure oil system can exceed 3,500 PSI even slight surface abnormalities can result in problems over time.
Performing the ball tube / oring repair requires a special tool to remove and replace the hex compression ring. The tool also aligns and centers the ball tube to the rail during the reassembly process. This tool is a one-time investment that can be used over and over again.
