Having seen the original picture of them, I've very impressed.
Sounds like a new set of air injectors would be the way to go.

Report

I have had the report back from BRUCATO and they have serviced the fuel injexctors and fitted new o rings they were 20% out at WOT and idle .
The Iar injectors are as we thought u/s and are now in the bin . New ones being fitted so I look forward to a refreshed engine !
I highly recommend Brucato who have been so helpfull and informative . They do upgraded ECU for some motors and can service all injectors . The cost of send all 12 to the US was about £50.00 so not too bad .

Update

At last I have the boat back in the water after the injector saga , we also found a cross threaded plug on No. 3 which required a helicoil insert . A brief run out today was great ,it felt like a new engine and we got 41.2 knots at WOT .This is the best ever since owning the boat. #
Many thanks to Mark Halliday for your help in starting etc .

Glad to be of service.

Perhaps you should have attempted a trip to the Folly after all.

Also we like the dinner idea. Keep us informed if it goes ahead or if you want any help.
