2.5L Fuel line disconnects...reusable?

Anyone know if the fuel line disconnects on the 95 yj 2.5L are reusable? Hanes says they're a one shot deal, and you have to replace the o-rings, spacer, and retainer each time you disconnect. The problem is I don't see anyone carrying the little plug that reinstalls those items.

I'd like to pull my fuel injectors for cleaning and/or replacement.

I like to use new when possible. That being said I've reused them before too. The auto shop down the street from my house had new connectors laying around so I replaced em. Check your local mechanic shops. Sometimes you'll find a real cool shop that will help you out. If they do I always buy the guys lunch. $50 goes along way in the long run and your credibility.

I have reused mine 3 times so far with no issues. As long as they feel right when you clip them in the should be good. Mine are still the factory origionals

Because people want more of our money. They beleive us YJ guys are recycling way more than we should and never planned for it.

As long as theyre not busted and still lock down they are fine to reuse. If you're worried about it though theyre only a few dollars at the auto parts store.
