    Yep, rod caps do have an orientation on the rod. From your original description I thought you were talking about the entire rod on the big end.

    It should be pretty water tight. Not only the rubber plugs around the wires, but there is an o-ring that seals the mating surface.

    I highly recommend these folks for injector service. Costs me about $100 including shipping both ways for four injectors. Cheap price to pay to know you are at peak injector performance.
