No it is not normal, at some point the injector hold down bolt has streached from overtighteniing, or was never torqued correctly. This allows the injector to un seat.
It is nearly impossible to get an old copper washer to seal properly that is why it is recomended to use new washers. While you have the injectors out I would recomend changeing the o-rings any way. The o-ring kit isn,t real expensive.
I also recomend cleaning the injector cup, which by the way if any of the injectors were hard to get out, the cup itself may have unseated. Which is a whole nuther ball game.
