I don't have to take off intake, do I?
As for actually pulling them out, do I pry on the big piece that actually fills the hole, or the smaller one? I don't see how I can pry them out without either pulling on the line, or taking the intake off..
Thanks.

Ok I got them off, and got the seals off.. How do I get the new ones back on over the bottom of the injector?

Well, what was your trick for removing them anyway?

you need an injecter puller if you cant GENTLY pull them out. I've heard of people making them out of a coat hanger or something, but i dont know much bout that.
To get the o-rings off, I just snip-snip with scisors or a knife. to get the new ones on, soak them in gasoline for a few minutes. the gas softens them up and makes them pliable so you can slide them on easier. Dont worry if they're all stretched out once you get them on, the elastic memory of the material will pull them back to shape.

They just came out with minimal force.. Now I'm ready to put them back in, and it doesn't seem to want to go all the way in.. How hard am I supposed to push? Or will the clip thing push it the rest of the way in?
