Had time today so decided to experiment on the removal of the pre-cups. All went really well after I got the first one removed so I could see exactly what was in that dark hole. Took my time with the first one, tap tap tap, measure measure measure, tap tap tap, measure measure measure. You get the idea. After using different materials as a drift on the first one, after the first cup was out, and I saw it`s construction, and the relationship of the injector hole and the glow plug hole(both holes are 6mm) I took a 3/16th. punch, ground the face slightly concave. The 3/16th drift gave me just enough space in a 6mm bore to give the drift a slight tip which is needed. 5 minutes the other cups were out
