Well the fuel rail is done with all 6 pipes attached. Just need to fit it to the engine now!

You will find that that IS the tricky part... BigGrin

Sticking them onto the engine looks dead simple, but I found that a) I really needed those explanatory diagrams in the instructions, because weaving the hoses round the injectors was, um, challenging, and b) even when you have them where they should be they will always want to spring back out of where you need to glue them. Be prepared to have sore fingers from holding them in for ages while the so-called 'instant' glue takes ages to go off.

You're right, that WAS the tricky part and it took me a while but it's all done now.

I apologize for bringing a topic from the dead. But I am currently here and it seems to be quite challenging and after reading comments here I see IT IS quite challenging. Did anyone figure out an easier way to do it? I have feeling that 6 houses that will go to the fuel rail have to be twisted as well, to match angle on which they are going into the injectors. Should I try to be smart and I find a new way, or just do as they say and hold 6 ends one by one to an injector until adhesive doesn't do its job?
