I bunged a load of oil through it today, and also undid the little plug in
the side where it says "OIL" and put some in there for good measure.
I'll experiment further with some bolts and see how tight it goes. If it
turns out to be crap, well, swings and roundabouts, ain't it - I'll have to
buy a better one, put it down to experience or something.

The nice thing about the injector socket is the depth, plus it's single hex.
The depth means the handle clears the bodywork without using an extension.
