And If there is any thing else I should make sure of. I know to torque the injectors and the rail back down and make sure the washer comes out with the injectors but anything else
Just a piece of advice. My number 3 & 5 went bad in Feb and I tried to be cheap and open her up and replace those two. Ran great for 5 days and started acting up again. I had to take it back to ford to diagnose it again to find out #7 died as well. I by no means am a expert but the service manager is a friend and told me its better to do a bank at a time the first time and I didnt listen. I had to swallow my pride when I had to go back the second time. When I opened it up the second time I said the hell with it and replaced the last 6. Been running like a dream for the last 4000 miles.
I cleaned my pockets with a 12Ga nylon brush.
