I don't know but it sounds like they've been overtightened. Do they all leak?

I just did an injector flow test on mine into six 6 oz plastic water bottles and I only snugged the lines on for that and none of them leaked. I do tighten them a little more than snug when doing the final install so they don't come loose down the road from vibration and start a fire or something.

You could use a crows foot wrench on an inch pound torque wrench if the feeling for just snug is questionable for you.
There is a tightening torque spec for them somewhere.

BTW, mine sprayed real nice and filled the bottles evenly after gently wiring the pintle open and back flushing them with compressed air and carb cleaner after soaking them in a glass jar of techron for 3 weeks a month ago.

My motor has never idled as smooth and even as it does now. I was also really anal about getting the 964 cam timing exactly the same 1.26mm for the intake valve during TDC overlap on each side too and then remounting the dial gauge and checking it again afterwards.
