There's an interesting little note in the book about testing injectors.

It says that Viton-tipped injectors cannot be successfully tested if
they have been out of contact with fuel for more than an hour.  I've
always wondered about this, and I always keep any injectors that I've
temporarily removed from an engine in a little pot of petrol.
