Fitting Fuel Injector Rail After Replacing Head - HELLLLP!!! Please.
At the risk of making myself look like a dumb a55 (nothing new lol) I think it's time to ask for some assistance.
A few weeks ago I took the head off my 2.0 TS CF1. Headgasket had gone and I sent it to be skimmed. Today, I finally got round to putting it all back together with a new headgasket. When I came to bolt the injector rail back on, the injectors didn't sit in their holes. The O rings just touch the top. As the rail and the inlet manifold are cast alloy, there is no room for adjustment. I remember when I took the rail off, the injectors "popped" out. Now it's been a long day and it could just be my brain is frazzled but can anyone tell me if I've made an obvious mistake or have I lost something, or; even worse; have I put something back incorrectly? I know it's difficult to diagnose without seeing it but if anyone has had this happen and knows what i might have done I would really appreciate you telling me.
