    Thanks @Migmac very generous offer! Unfortunately I ordered some earlier. Hopefully I won't need injectors, but the ends looked variable so at £12 each for a test + a few quid for a clean I thought it was worth it.
    The bad plugs does explain why it was difficult to start though.

    I bet it was the 2 plugs closest the nut on the buzz bar

    It was the 2 furry black ones at the front I think - cant be certain as I was not that careful with the order!

    Alright which one of you clever people knows how to get the flipping tensioner spring back on after you remove the water pump...

    To move the tensioner once the spring is mounted a screwdriver works, but to get the spring back on after I took out the water pump to check it (pointless as it looks like the least likely part to break ever!). I did manage it by putting a ring spanner over the spring end and pivoting it backwards then moving the tensioner into position =- but then the ring spanner was stuck in there and removing it put me back to square one :doh:

    How do they fail? Seems really solid to me.

    We're they far off with the spray pattern?

    Report was that spray was ok but 2 of them were not closing properly (which concurs with their "wet" appearance when I pulled them, would be sorted out with a full strip and clean which I paid a bit extra for. Total £65+VAT - inc pick up and delivery.

    No just the £80 to test and clean all of them - I had exactly the same thought when they told me!

    New nozzles are only about £15 an injector and take a few minutes to fit. I have never found them out of spec on the pop tester after fitting so probably ok to strip, clean and re assemble with new nozzles. just saying :)
