Installed new injector adapter cups as I am installing the fuel injectors, I am having trouble getting two of the injectors back in, so I started inspecting the adapter cups and just as I thought two of them are sitting at an angle. I am not sure how to get them out and try again without damaging them. I do not have a special tool to use, so how can I fix this problem so my injectors will go in?

Good morning,

You cannot remove them without destroying them. You will need to get another set on sleeves for this.

Use Vaseline as lube when installing.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
