How does a heui system work?

How does a heui system work?

The high-pressure oil on top of the intensifier piston forces the plunger (D) down, which in turn forces the nozzle needle to lift, pressurizing the fuel in the plunger cavity, and ultimately opening the nozzle (E), sending fuel into the combustion chamber.

What does heui stand for?

Hydraulic Electronic Unit Injectors
Hydraulic Electronic Unit Injectors (HEUI): This computer-controlled system consists of a combined pump and injector for each engine cylinder. It uses high amounts of pressure to fire precise strokes of fuel to the engine. You’ll mostly find HEUI systems in older Ford Powerstroke injectors.

What engines use heui?

HEUI applications included the 7.3L and 6.0L Powerstroke used between 1993.5 and 2007 by Ford. International also used the HEUI system for multiple engines including the DT-466, DT 570, T-444E, DT-466–570, Max Force 5, 7, 9, 10, Max Force DT and VT365 engines.

How does a HEUI fuel pump work?

The HEUI pump pressurizes the engine oil which is fed to the HEUI injector. The high-pressure oil then pushes the plunger which then pushes the fuel and pressure is created. To generate the required pressure, the PCM controls the IPR (injection pressure regulator).

Is 6.7 Powerstroke a heui?

2 (6.7L) No HEUI here, just diesel fuel. Modern day, common-rail technology is employed on the 6.7L Power Stroke and at the heart of the system is a CP4.

Who invented heui?

1. Caterpillar Roots. HEUI was a joint venture between Caterpillar and Navistar (i.e. International) and was introduced in 1993. Thanks to being electronically controlled via a computer, it was the first system whereby fuel pressurization and injection timing could be varied independently from engine speed.

Does a heui pump have to be timed?

These are not timed so you don’t have to worry about calibrating. Torque the bolts to 40 foot pounds.

How can you tell if you have a bad heui pump?

Symptoms of a Failing HEUI Pump

  1. Decreased Injection Pressure.
  2. Higher Engine Temperatures.
  3. Unusual Noises.
  4. Engine Not Starting.
