Safety Warnings and Precautions
WARNING: When using tool, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to equipment.
Read all instructions before using this tool!
1.
Keep work area clean. Cluttered areas invite injuries.
2.
Observe work area conditions. Do not use machines or power tools in
damp or wet locations. Don’t expose to rain. Keep work area well lighted.
3.
Keep children away. Children must never be allowed in the work area. Do
not let them handle machines, tools, or extension cords.
4.
Store idle equipment. When not in use, tools must be stored in a dry
location to inhibit rust. Always lock up tools and keep out of reach of children.
5.
Use the right tool for the job. Do not attempt to force a small tool or
attachment to do the work of a larger industrial tool. There are certain
applications for which this tool was designed. It will do the job better and
more safely at the rate for which it was intended. Do not modify this tool and
do not use this tool for a purpose for which it was not intended.
6.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry as they can be caught
in moving parts. Protective, electrically non-conductive clothes and non-skid
footwear are recommended when working. Wear restrictive hair covering to
contain long hair.
7.
Use eye and ear protection. Always wear ANSI approved impact safety
goggles.
8.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Do not
reach over or across running machines.

Maintain tools with care. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and safer
performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
Inspect tool cords periodically and, if damaged, have them repaired by an
authorized technician. The handles must be kept clean, dry, and free from oil
and grease at all times.
10. Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Check that keys and adjusting
wrenches are removed from the tool or engine work surface before operating.
11. Stay alert. Watch what you are doing, use common sense. Do not operate
any tool when you are tired.
12. Check for damaged parts. Before using any tool, any part that appears
damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate
properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment and binding
of moving parts; any broken parts or mounting fixtures; and any other
condition that may affect proper operation. Any part that is damaged should
be properly repaired or replaced by a qualified technician.
13. Replacement parts and accessories. When servicing, use only identical
replacement parts. Use of any other parts will void the warranty. Only use
accessories intended for use with this tool. Approved accessories are
available from Harbor Freight Tools.
14. Do not operate tool if under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Read
warning labels if taking prescription medicine to determine if your judgment or
reflexes are impaired while taking drugs. If there is any doubt, do not operate
the tool.
15. Avoid working alone. If an accident happens, an assistant can bring help.
Additional Product Specific Safety Precautions
1.
Do not use Fuel Injection Test Kit on diesel engines.
2.
Loosen gas cap and relieve fuel pump pressure before testing.
3.
Before testing fuel system, verify all connections are tight to eliminate
leaking.
4.
Do not change fittings with engine running.
5.
Gasoline is highly flammable. Do not smoke, or test near open flames or a
source of electrical sparks.
6.
Do not allow gasoline to come in contact with the hot manifolds or other
engine components.
7.
Do not drive the vehicle while under test.
8.
If portable lighting is required, use only explosion proof drop-light.

Before testing, review and follow instructions from the vehicle manufacturer’s
service manual.
10. After testing, turn engine off and depressurize system before removing test

Wipe up any spilled fuel. Place cloths in a fireproof container.
11. Clean all testing components of residual fuel before storing.
Warnings
The vehicle engine must never be started in a closed garage, or any other
sealed structure. Carbon monoxide is produced during operation and is deadly
in a closed environment. Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble
the flu, with headaches, dizziness, or nausea. If you have any of these signs
get fresh air immediately.
The warnings, cautions, and instructions discussed in this instruction manual
cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be
understood by the operator that common sense and caution are factors which
cannot be built into this product, but must be supplied by the operator.
The brass components of this product contain lead, a chemical known to the
State of California to cause birth defects (or other reproductive harm). (California Health & Safety Code 25249.5 et seq.)
Unpacking
When unpacking, check to make sure the following parts are included. Refer to the
Parts List and Drawing at the end of this manual. If any parts are missing or
broken, please call Harbor Freight Tools at the number on the cover of this manual.
Operation
Caution: Before making connections and testing, place a dry chemical (Class
B) fire extinguisher nearby.
The components in this Fuel Injection Test Kit enable the testing of the fuel delivery pressure to the engine. Pressure Gauge (1) connections are made either
directly to the pump, or in-line with the pump and engine.
1.
Relieve the fuel line pressure from the vehicle fuel system.
Refer to the vehicle manufacturer’s service manual for instruction on relieving
pressure from the fuel line, testing procedures and connection points, and
normal pressure readings.
2.
Use the various fittings and hoses to connect the Pressure Gauge (1) directly
to the fuel pump, as in the case of the VW®, or in-line with the fuel pump and
engine for most other vehicles. See connection examples on the next page.

Use a small amount of pipe compound or teflon tape on the connection
threads to prevent leaks. Tighten using a wrench (not supplied).
Caution: Make sure all connections are tight to avoid fuel leaks.
3.
Start the engine and immediately check for fuel leaks. If fuel leaks are found,
turn engine off and fix leaks.
4.
Read the pressure off the Pressure Gauge (1).
5.
Turn off the engine and remove the keys from the ignition.
6.
Wrap a cloth around the hose connection point before relieving the pressure
from the fuel line, and remove testing components.
7.
Reconnect vehicle’s fuel injection line.
8.
Wipe up any spilled fuel. Dispose of fuel-soaked rags in a fireproof container.
9.
Start the engine and check for leaks. Fix leaks if found.
10. Clean and store Fuel Injection Test Kit components and place in the plastic kit
bag.
