    Its coming from somewhere dude ;P

    New seals for sure... have seen loads where they have just shrunk and gone a little hard over time (fnarr!)... the injector bungs can also contribute but its mostly the seals...

    Seals are around £3 IIRC... bungs can be done with the inlet on no probs... just be careful tightening them as they are quite brittle... I used a little high temp silicon sealant on mine just because...

    If you get stuck, I have a bag of 20 or something o-rings.

    Careful taking them off, the little discs on the end of the injectors can get really brittle. Mine fell apart when taking the injectors out of the manifold and I was picking loads of bits out of the head for ages and then had to source new ones, which was a nightmare.
