Re: Galaxy DX 2527 (EPT295013Z) Direct Injection Help

Thank you goldfinger. Ok. Please bare with me. I think I am understanding your diagram for the original swing mod. The only thing I am worried about is removing the current swing mod. I'm not sure exactly what all has to be removed/replaced. Again, I apologize for all of these questions.
