Today I finally got my high pressure oil system completely back together. Just to be sure before I buttoned it back up (HPOP
cover), I put ~125 PSI
air on the system via the port where the HPOP
cover connects. Much to my dismay, I heard more than one leak.
I pulled off one of the oil manifolds and then applied the air directly to the port on the top of the injectors. Two of the four on the passenger side leaked (I didn't pull apart the driver side yet). It appears the air is escaping from the small holes around the main hydraulic hole on the top of the injectors.
So my question is: Is this bad? I have a feeling it is, but I thought I'd ask. If it is a problem, what can I do to remedy it? Are new injectors the only option? Is it common for injectors to leak on the hydraulic side like this? I have a lot of money into this project already and would rather not put a ton more into it right now.
By the way, I have already installed new ball tube O-rings, new top (ball tube connection) seals on the injectors, and a new HPOP
. I would like to replace the remaining seals (the ones at the flex hose connections), but I'm not sure where to get these, or even if they can be replaced. It is the early high pressure oil setup, by the way.
Thanks for to anyone who can shed some light on this injector thing.
