    right crack the four injector feed pipes,with someone to turn engine and hold throttle open turn engine till fuel is seen coming from the union .tighten injector feed on this one then crankl again till fuel is seen coning from another one and so on untill all four are tightened .it should start with a bit of heat ,and dont overdo the starter only short bursts with a minute or so between each crank in case you melt solder in the commutator
