The solenoids are calibrated from the factory and are not all the same. The solenoids can be replaced separately, but only with a replacement solenoid with an injector nozzle and band number that matches the solenoid being replaced. When solenoid(s) are replaced, the new solenoid band number must match the old solenoid band number. The band number is next to the two-dimensional matrix barcode on the side of the solenoid and will be a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
