Fuel Injector Interchange
by Richard Atwell
Bosch L-Jetronic components don't vary much from model to model. Despite the difference in engine displacement between models and model years, you can use any of these fuel injectors in your FI bus. This is good to know because NOS injectors are often available at prices much lower than the $60-90 new injectors cost. The reason? Many models are gladly converted to carbs by their owners or the owner's mechanics lowering the demand and freeing up the supply for the other FI models.

Note: buses can't use these but I thought I'd list them for identification purposes.
