im doing my head gaskets and went ahead and had the injectors flow tested and cleaned. one of the injector cups came out with the injector, the rest stayed in but one of them looks just a slight bit higher then the rest. should i just put the injectors back in or pull the cup. like i said it stayed in when i first pulled the injector. and i didnt pay close enough attention to see if it moved when i pulled the injector. what should i do?

Don't take the chance of pushing it back in and having coolant leak into the cylinder. Remove it and replace it.

If you can get it out nicely go ahead and reuse the cup. Replace the two orange o-rings and use a liquid teflon sealant.

and when putting them back in just make sure everything is clean put some lock tight on the taper and push it down in an install the injector?

well replaced one of the cups but since the heads were machined down the new cup sits a fraction below the surface of the head. is this a problem?
