Default Fuel injectors: How to remove them when stuck?

Just like the title says. I have some that I'm going to pull from a friend's mani but they seem to be stuck (I'm going to have the ones in my car cleaned). I have them unplugged and the covers off but they won't seem to pull out. I can twist them but nothing else. I'm afraid of resorting to pliers.

anyone with tips?

Jared

If only one is stuck you can pressurize the system and use the pressure to force it out. Just undo the retaining clip and pop it goes, at least it did for me.

These injectors are in an intake manifold that is sitting on my work bench. Not really an option of pressuring them for me. Oh, and all 4 of the darn things won't pull out, just twist.

None of you gurus have any tips?

Yeah, there is the electrical plug and then you remove 2 screws and a remove a "cover". As far as I can tell there aren't any other parts retaining them. The Haynes manual says to just twist and pull straight up. yeah, well I can twist but no pulling is happening.

Thanks KD.

I don't think that method will work with the EJ25 NA engines. There really is not any thing to put the end of the scewdriver under on my injectors. I ended up using a shop rag and vice grips.

Got them out. Not ideal I know, but all is well. There was still a fair bit of fuel in them, which is now on my bench. I wasn't really expecting that.
