I'm not going to put the 703's back in so if anyone wants them let me know. I cleaned them with seafoam and they have new baskets, pintle caps, and O rings. There is about 2000 miles on them since the rebuild.
That sounds great...definitely not the "yeah I think its better" results most have with the 703s...let us know what you get milage-wise, I'd be concerned that they run a little richer.

I can't make a comparison on these 789 'svs the 703's since the 703's were not flow matched or professionally refurbished. But they are working great. As for running rich, they have a slightly less flow rating than the 703's or so I have read.

They're on the list now. My ZJ runs a tad rich with stock injectors. I think a few are slightly leaking.

I don't smell the gas smell anymore. One or more of the JY 703's may have been cycling lazy or something. These 789's are very nice though. Fell in love with driving it all over again.

Ford Motorsports sells a set of adapters that are a single solid piece, i.e. not two plugs and wire. I had a set on some injectors I tried on my 93. Not a big deal; I just thought they were cleaner.

On the V8 there is very little room around the injectors especially to the front near the heater hose on the pass side and behind the ac compressor on the drivers side. I doubt those would fit. It was a pretty tight squeeze with the harnesses I got. For the 4.0 it might not matter but I wouldn't be driving one of those anyway

Gotcha, I've only seen the V8 at the junkyard while looking for 4.0s so I wouldn't know. Plenty of room on the 4.0

Yea they really crammed that V8 in there with little room to spare. Looks like the millennium falcon innards. Wires and hoses going all over.

You guys are so dang hard on us 4.0 guys. Must be where most of you guys live and what you do with your jeeps.

Us backwoods Kentucky boys, if we haul anything we bring our big diesel trucks....not our jeeps. When we offroad we stay light so we don't sink in the mud....and before any of you v8 guys jump me about they aren't but only 100 pounds or so heavier motor....I've gotten thru plenty more holes of deep mud than some of the v8 guys. They do nose dive....yes they have more power...but sometimes they end up in a bigger mess in which they can't get out of either. At least in my experiences. I'm not a rock guy at all. We like slingin mud having fun, drive it there and be able to drive it home....most of the time.

But I can't tell you how many times that whole thing you guys do about pounding your chest over your v8 just makes me shake my head. I don't own my jeep to go fast on pavement....nor haul big trailers upwards of 10,000 pounds....it's a jeep. Built to last forever, go over, through, or around basically any obstacle given the right driver.

I guess I just haven't seen any V8 go with me and have any advantage over my 4.0 to make me believe there's something so special to want one the way you guys keep putting us 4.0 folks down. I know it's all in good fun...but dang give it rest or let's see where there's a huge advantage.

Sorry...wayyyyy off topic on early Saturday morning

My buddy bought the same one listed in this thread. They don't have the plastic caps like the 703s so there are some unused parts but the filters and o-rings are the same.

Ok I didn't know that. So the same kit for the 703 rebuild will work on the stock injectors is what you are saying?

Yup. They work. Like I said, you're just going to have some leftover pieces.
