Maybe forgot to tighten Fuel injectors when I did head gasket replace-help?

Ok guys, just spent three days with the cab off doing head studs and everything is a blur.I am doubting wether or not I torqued the injectors down in the passenger head. I ran the truck last night for 15 or so minutes to operating temps and other than a small fuel leak at the driver's side banjo bolt, everything sounded and looked good.

What would be tell tale signs that I forgot? Should I pull the valve covers to check?

I'm physically and mentally exhausted

Thinking about it, I know that the oil log can't be tightened without the injectors being tightened down. Just hope that I torqued them too.

Better to be safe than sorry. If the injectors are loose you will get combustion blow by which will burn out the o-ring and it will start dumping fuel into the cylinder.
