I am looking at some injectors the are used and are laying on their side on a table dry.

I thought injectors cannot be stored "dry" and must be kept submerged in oil or upright with fuel in them?

Can anyone clear this up now so I can know whether to bid on them at an auction.

Thanks for any quick reply's.

Injectors really should be stored in plastic bags or airtight containers and not allowed to dry out to prevent them from sticking. Sometimes they can sit for months without problems and at other times they can stick after a few days. It also depends on the the injector's construction.
You should ask how long they have been out of the car and how they were stored.

We get a lot of business unsticking and cleaning Ebay injectors due them improperly being stored. Many have them sent directly in to us for servicing.
There is always a chance that they are damaged beyond servicing due to corrosion from long term storage.

Good luck,
