It sounds to me like you've gotten this clogged idea into your head 
and the first thing you need to do is rid yourself of this idea. You 
should be able to do this if you will remove the screw from the tap 
between the #3 and 4 injectors. That's a spot set up to attach a 
pressure gauge. If you have a gauge, you can connect it there with 
a 5/16" rubber hose and measure the pressure. If you don't have a 
gauge you can just attach the hose and direct it into a can.

Get someone to turn the key ON while you watch the hose. They 
may have to cycle the key several times to clear the line of air. 
Once the air is out of the line, you should get a strong flow out of 
the hose for about 1 second each time you cycle the key to ON.
