Default Proper storage of L67 Injectors

While I was at the local yard trying to scavange a set of tires for my Sable (no luck witht their odd size) I nabbed a set of L67 injectors from an engine that 2 guys just took the SC off of.

Whats the best way to store these?
I've got them soaking in seafoam for now.

My advice is to keep them in their native environment. Glass jar full of gasoline.

Even the injectors at FIE start to have problems with 'preservative' injected through them. This is USED rebuilt injectors. Over time, they occasionally get unhappy. This is why FIE re-flows injectors previously flowed to verify they still work and flow the same when a new match request comes in.

Once running, they're fine. Fill a jar with gas (enough to cover them), with a gas-tight lid, and flip it upside down ever few days to help burp the air pockets out. They should last forever that way if they were still good to begin with.

Would keeping them submerged in gasoline cause the electrical connectors to corrode or short out?

idk, if they're submerged, then there is no oxygen to oxidize. right?

Gas shouldn't hurt anything on the injectors. As pointed out, they're not in an oxygenated environment, and gas isn't corrosive.

Let 'em drain and dry for a day before you install.

Ryan, get yours in SOMETHING soon.
