Cory-burt's instructions are for REPLACING the fuel rails, not simply removing them for the purpose of easier COP/plug handling nor are they for simply replacing the injectors. In addition to your 1-6 I would replace the o-rings and use di-electric grease to put the injectors back if you remove them.

Are there any tricks to putting the fuel rail back on? I needed to get to #7 to remove the COP and spark plug, so I pulled the rail off, but it doesn't seem to want to go back on. I didn't release the fuel pressure, I just pulled on them and pulled them off. I lost a little bit of fuel but not too much. I aligned them back up with the injectors (which I didn't remove) and tried to push down and pop them back on, but they don't seem to want to pop back on.
