VISUAL INSPECTION OF PLUNGER
An injector which passes all of the previous tests should have the plunger checked visually, under a magnifying glass, for
excessive wear or a possible chip on the bottom helix. There is a small area on the bottom helix and lower portion of the
upper helix, if chipped, that will not be indicated in any of the tests.
Remove the plunger from the injector as follows:
