    Ok, I am now officially pissed off at my distributor.

    I bought a OTC fuel injection cleaning kit. It came with zero adapters. I was ok with that and told him to send me the most common ones. Such as ford and GM/Mopar.

    I am in my 5th week of waiting and pestering my distributor and I keep hearing back order. WTF.

    This is exactly what I bought. See snapshot. Like I said, box came with no, nada, zilch adatpers. I can't believe these can't be found in the province of quebec. I have a ton of vehicles waiting for some love in the injector dept and also need this kit to work as I used to use one exactly the same to help drive in cars and trucks with faulty fuel pumps. Which I see alot of here up north. This is an essential tool for me and I NEED those adapters.

    Where can I find some?? I am willing to pay shipping if need be. I am simply tired of hearing back order.

    My fuel injection pressure testing kit that I inherited here does not use the same adapter/shreader valve system. So no joy jerry rigging something to work for me.

    I think robinair, bosch and OTC use the same style adapters.

    Any help finding those would be nice. Screenshot (94).png

    Ooops, read into that 8+ weeks on back order. Just found the receipt. I think I will call OTC client satisfaction tomorrow and give them a piece of my mind. Will also try to get a free update on my OTC/Bosch J2534 interface since the kit I bought came with no DVD/CD and had to buy a supposedly free software.

    OTC has taken a steady drop since back in the day in that dept. What gives. Used to be a stand up company.

    You are saying it came without the fittings ( about eight) shown in the picture? Tomorrow morning I'm going within a mile of the local place that is an OTC distributor, I'll inquire as to what is available.

    Yes, no fittings, just the pressure container and the long hose. I fired off an e-mail last night to the OTC support team explaining my problems. I greatly appreciate your effort Billr, as I am nowhere near a OTC dealer. Thx.

    No joy. They stock that stuff about 150 miles from me, and no clue as to whether the fittings are available separately; they gave me a phone number for OTC if you want me to look into it more. I see those kits are available from Amazon for about 200USD. I would be willing to order one to send to you, if you are desperate enough to go that route.

    However, how would I get it to you efficiently? Does your sister still have any Air Canada connections that fly into OAK or SFO? We have a friend that returns to Toronto periodically, but it would be a real fluke if she is going that way soon.

    Thx Billr. I contacted the OTC support and they said they will send me the adapters when I show proof of purchase. SO that is the route I will go from here.

    Thx for taking the time to check that for me.

    As for the J2534 interface, they said the software is no longer update-able. So that is a bummer. In essence, it is now just a deluxe J2534 pass through device. I wish the OTC supplier I used would have told me that at time of purchase. I would have invested more for a better coverage in the OBD2 software dept.
