Exactly what do you mean here? Just pulled the wires off the injectors and installed them on the other injector? That won't work since the injectors shoot gas at different times. It's been a long time since I worked on one of these, so I am trying to understand if you mean you swapped the entire wire, but don't the injector wires go into the harness and run all the way to the ecu?
In early 302 port fuel injected engines, Ford used batch fired fuel injection. My understanding is, all the injectors on one side of the engine pulsed and then the other side. Injector timing would not be so critical the cylinder miss or hit would not be detectable. IMO
