    James,

    There are two schools of thought on whether or not to use the oil injector and both have valid arguments. My personal experience is that it is just as likely that you can forget to premix as it is to have an injector failure. I have never had an injector failure and have never personally met anyone that had an injector failure. Either method of delivering oil is perfectly acceptable if done properly. I have never seen an injector wired permanently open before but should work. The check valves in the injector banjo fittings should prevent any excessive oil flow when the engine is off, even if the injector is wired open.

    It still sounds like you still have a problem with the injector cabling. The normal spring return tension on the injector should be more than enough to operate the injector properly if the cable is in good order.

    The marks on the injector lever should line up only at idle. If you wire it open, make sure it is all the way open. I would remove the injector cable altogether if you go this route. You could possibly have problems inside the splitter by having one cable which does not move as the others do.

    Bill.

    The two carb cables move easily but the oil pump cable does jump out of the slug when I am going back to idle. With the end of the oil pump out of the slug, the two carb cables won't got back to idle.

    Only thing I can think of is a problem with the injector cable or cable housing. When not connected to the pump, the cable should move easily in the cable housing with very little resistance. There could be something in the housing, maybe a crimp in the housing, or a bent cable inside the housing. The lever on the pump, when not hooked to the cable, should easily snap back to the closed position when pulled open and released. I've never seen it happen, but the lever could be binding in the pump.
