    Leaking Diesel Injectors?

    So, stopping diesel injectors leaking? Tried some blue instant gasket, and it's sort of working, but one of them is still seeping a bit. They've been done up with a breaker bar, and seem to be leaking where the injector seperates into two peices... They were a nightmare to get out of the head initially, and now they're back in they're weeping and leaking..

    Anyone got any bright ideas at all?

    you sure problem aint within the injector?? cavitation?

    if not id put in a thicker gasket as thats what we did on engine test bed at uni.

    seems the only way to stop em leaking is to just keep tightening things up though lol

    yeah, but these are leaking on the body, not the union which uses copper washers

    Well, the instant gasket is holding out so far...

    Thanks for the advice though Lee. If they start leaking again, then it'll be recon jobbies that'll need to go on there.
