Speaking of cleaning injectors, I bought an injector "tune up kit" from Rod
at TPC recently ($4/injector)--came with several new seals as well as what
looks like a new plastic cap/hat on the sprayer side. No directions
included--can anybody shed some light on this? Does the cap just press on?
is this kit worthwhile? Any BTDT?
