Default Attaching Injector to Fuel Rail

Hi there everyone,

I hope you can help me with my problem. I had to remove my fuel rail to replace my intake manifold. I made the mistake of removing the fuel rail from the injectors. Now my problem is attaching the injector back to the rail. I have a 97 bonneville and I cant seem to push the injector up into the rail far enough to put the clip on. What is the trick to do this? If you can please help me, I'd greatly appreciate it. Please send responses to my email [email protected] (I'll be checking there more frequently).

whats up I had the same problem. Should stay on the site it'* a fun place. But is the O ring on the injector or still in the rail look in the rail and see if you can pick out the oring place it back on the injector and put some motor oil on it to slip in easy not damaging the o ring. hope this helps. Boostx732x from SRT forum aka Andrew my best friend noticed this when I was tryign to cram my injector back in :Welcome

Check your O rings. Also put a small amount of oil to lube the O ring. This way it should slip back in with no problem. When you tighten the bolts holding the rail down it should pull in the rest of the way.
