Hmm.  I thought the 13mm ones were always long?

I'm not sure exactly when the change was made.  It may have been for the MB 
engine, but I think I've seen it on a WR ...

Anyway, the inlet manifold has a channel cast into it that bypasses the 
throttle butterfly and supplies various users of boost at the back of the 
manifold.  With forced air injector cooling, there's a short air pipe from the 
channel cast in the manifold over to where the injectors are.  High pressure 
air (not much of it, though) passes down this pipe and through a longtitudinal 
hole drilled along the manifold and passing through the injector ports.  The 
holes in the injector seats permit this air to swirl around and cool the 
injector body.

It works hard.  I took it to Cambridge for the day.

I spent three hours last night dismantling and reassembling the fuel injection 
system to change the combined system and control pressure regulator valve.  I 
also discovered that the gearbox oil level was lower than I'd like, and there's 
a design fault in the after-market wiring harness.  In the circumstances, I 
though I'd just load the workshop into the car.  Just in case.
