I ordered a new injector but after 5 days it still hasn't arrived.

I pulled the injectors, soaked/flushed them with kerosene and installed new seals. It looks like the kerosene has revived the dead injector.

Still idles a little funky but this sounds like its hitting on 6 to me. Adjusted the valves to .010 cold but may need to go in and tighten them up a thou.


Shortly after taking that I realized the bolts for the bracket connecting the intake/VC actually seal vacuum. Popped those back in and shes idling pretty well.
