I can change #1 through #4 in less than 3 minutes each. #5 longer, may 10 minutes. The trick is have the wires easy to remove and use the correct tools.
Having small hands help out a lot more then you realize

So 1/4 inch ratchet and universal are strange tools? I like to see what's in your tool box. On the 617, injector hard line removal is not required, if you use the strange tools mentioned.

Mine are easy to remove, takes me longer to remove the 8mm nuts then any other part. I just use a 22mm wrench and an 8mm....brake everything lose and then use my hands to unthread them...granted its a 78 and I don't stand on the wrench to tighten them. On my 81 300d, I had to remove the hard lines because they were all carbon up...and froze....
