When I bought the truck they were leaking, so I replaced them with a diapco O ring kit, supposed to be a really good kit, but the new o rings r already leaking on the drivers side of the motor

It's a 94, I assumed they never have been replaced, the o rings were bad! They were hard and broken

You might want to check your injector pressure.

Could be too high.

Ford Never built that engine like Dodge and the cummins they bought it from international so really they probably buy it from International and mark it up

I really just meant for longevity purposes....like he said trucks a 94 OE lasted that long until he replaced with after market to save a buck and not last

Stick another OE set in Ford / 13 letter shit spreader and hopefully get the same amount of years outta them that's all I'm getting at

The ones from Ford have worked great for my brother and I also this works just as well and cheap http://pensacoladiesel.com/ford-6-9l-7-3l/installation-kits/ I fully recommend doing the entire kit I spent to much time trying to fix all the leaks my first time but everything gets hard and leaks easy. Best thing to do is grease the o-rings before you put the caps back on it helps a lot to snap the caps on and protects them from getting damaged

auctualy the aftermarket kit i got costed more than the oe parts lol,


owen, i asked them for both, the kit and the o rings, only thing they said was that if i brought them a o ring they might be able to match it, and thats a long shot, which i dont really want to just match up a o ring cause it prolly wont work,

i did replace everything on it, return lines, o rings, cups, and it was fine, but it started leaking last week, i dont know if the cold would have anything to do with it or not, mabey? i dunno,

what did u use to grease them, i was told to soak the rings in diesel fuel (which i DID NOT do) or to use vaselene on them when putting them in, which i did,

using the same lubricant that it will be used to seal is always a safe bet. atf for the transmission, hydraulic oil for a cylinder ect.

[iagree] even tho i have used small amounts of grease before but Vaseline seems to be the norm

I pulled the #1 injector and found a Peice of metal in the top o ring, so I replaced both o rings and the cup and that seemed to fix it, turns out it was only the first injector that was leaking, not the whole drivers side,
