Whoops, should have said that mine is the 1982 model, and has screw in
seats, that the injectors push fit into. I beleive that the earlier 80/4000s
did this, as do the VW Golf/Jettas.  The problem is that I can't actually
grip it from outside the cylinder head, and I'll only be able to grip it
from inside.  I don't really want to gave to take the inlet manifould off,
and break it up, for risk of getting lumps of plastic in the cylinder, and
spending alot of time for something so simple.
