>From my EKTA for the '91 models, injector "nozzle with needle" only:

1V: 068 130 211 H
ME/MF: 068 130 211 D

The complete injectors are:

ME: 068 130 201 NX (or NV)
MF: 068 130 201 PX (or PV)

and two more that don't specify the application, but I will assume are for 
the 1V ECO:

068 130 202 DX (or DV)

So there does appear to be a difference, although it's hard to say what it
