Hi Duke,
One other thing to check:
When I did my injectors, Cruzin found one that had a "fail" spray pattern. I could actually see a pile of buildup when looking in the injector port into the intake of the valve. I sprayed it with carb cleaner and used a test tube type brush to clean out the intake thru the injector hole.
If you do this you could also check the small rubber injector seal. Be careful not to lose the hard phenolic seal/seat in the intake manifold, if you use the spiral brush.
Sending the injectors in would be a wise thing...cheap at $16 each (including the upper and lower seals as well as new inlet screen and new pintle cap).
Best regards, Elio
