Hey all just wondering what the proper Tq is on the valve cover... It seems I did it incorrectly and is now leaking oil

Would you happen to have the part# for the injector pump fuel screw oring? It seems to be the root cause of my fuel leak that's been coming and going... Now it's back full force and I pulled the screw and the oring is split

no idea, I'd probably just go match it up somewhere if you can pull the screw and have the remains of the O-ring. Quick poke around says diesel fuel is fine with Viton, HNBR (those green AC o-rings) and standard black nitrile. Any auto parts store worth a damn ought to have an O ring assortment with something that will get the job done.


or measure carefully and buy a bag of 100 from McMaster for 10 bucks or so.
