Sounds like the sealing O-rings are either missing or damaged. See pic.

those were in kit and I did replace all of them not sure which failed

honestly till this past week I had never rebuilt injectors, only carbs. Well it went pretty easily , followed expert video (after reviewing many) and only think one possibility is the issue. One of the injectors didn't POP when it went into the body to seat the O Rings. Could that be it?

Possibly, your still going to have to remove the one that is leaking and see if the O-ring are cut or nicked.

And when you do put back together you can use WD40. Do not use silicone lube, it will foul out your O2 sensors. HTH

question//took it all back apart on top, injector out, did seem it was not fully seated down, but noticed in my rebuild kit 2 gold washers same size as big O rings...what are those for?

5

ok found the gasket was above the big O rings and that was backwards, when put it back in it was perfect, ran like a TOP. THanks a MILLION...now I can sell it, since I am moving
