not modified. just takes ages to fire up when warmed up and left standing for a while. just keeps turning over then eventually fiires up. possibly a sensor ?

Have you tried unplugging the 5th injector?
Also, could be faulty warm up regulator/connection

Yes mate. 2 fuel lines and a plug.

Check the wires to it aswell, being so old, they tend to break easy
