Jaguar Repair/1985 XJ6 cold start issue

So, I guess after doing all of the tests prescribed, and reporting the results, there is a dead end since this just glosses back over the entire procedure I just worked through. So, I guess what I'm getting is that (A) there is good fuel pressure at fuel rail and at cold start injector, but when removed from manifold (B) injector does not produce a cone spray of fuel, even though it can be heard clicking and that (C) there is voltage at thermal time switch and firewall relay as there should be so (D) the reasonable assumption is the cold start injector is clogged. Glad I was able to figure that out, finally.
