Normally, yes. However, don't be surprised if the kit has the wrong size O-rings for the fuel injector. I've done 3 rebuilds and not one kit had any rings that fit the injector, just a lot of extra rings that fit nothing.

Be sure to use the thick base gasket, which is over 1/4" thick, not the paper-thin one that some kits come with. It can be found separately, although some stores don't carry it.

The O-rings should be lubricated with a small amount of engine oil so that they don't tear when the injector is inserted. They both get placed on the injector, and then the injector is pressed in. Yes, it does take moderate force, but not full strength with both hands. It's a very snug fit. And there is an orientation to the electrical plug, so make sure the injector is rotated as described in the article before pressing it in. You can't turn it once inserted, so line it up right first.
