A few years ago, I made a fixture to hold injectors while I cut off the hose 
ferrules, just to make it easier. I can do this, and replace the hose stubs for 
only $5 per injector. That's a bargain.

I have good relations with a local shop that has an injector cleaner. I've run a 
few of our injectors thru it, but the owner told me when I first brought them in, 
that our style doesn't tend to get clogged up. He does lots of injectors of all 
different styles, and he finds that certain ones tend to need help and others 
don't. For once, our stuff comes out looking good.

On ours, the hose stubs fail, and I've had a few leak in places that couldn't 
be fixed, but I've never had one that needed anything else, other than to be 
run in the car.
