Default 89 Fuel Injectors

Does anyone know the stock size of the injectors for an 89? I think mine are leaking and I saw an ad for someone selling stock injectors from a tpi 305 motor, which is rated at 19 lbs an hour. Are mine close to these? Would they even work?
Thanks for any input.

a) the "C" injectors (AC-Delco 217-322) were used only on 3800 engines so one from a 305 may not fit properly.

b) the cyl size of a 305 is very close to that of a 3800 so would expect the flow to be similar.

Not much of an answer but all I have. Would expect stock injectors to be plentiful in yards de junque.

Thx for the imput. I wouldn't get injectors from a j/y--it'* like buying used brake pads--I could be getting the same kind of junk that I already have .

or think of it this way: you may be getting the treasured organs your car needs! I'd check prices: If the injectors from the dealership are THAT much more than the junkyard, and the junkard'* are relatively cheap, it may be best to just give the yard'* a try. I dont feel like going into the economics equation of it all but if you think it'* worth your while to give it a shot, it probably is.
