If C is a class of groups, a C-injector of a finite group G is a subgroup V of G with the property that VK is a C-maximal subgroup of K for all subnormal subgroups K of G. The classical result of B. Fischer, W. Gaschütz and B. Hartley states the existence and conjugacy of F-injectors in finite soluble groups for Fitting classes F. We shall show that for groups of nilpotent length at most 4, F-injectors permute with the members of a Sylow basis in the group. We shall exhibit the construction of a Fitting class and a group of nilpotent length 5, which fail to satisfy the result and show that the bound is the best possible.
