7.3 injector stuck open. 5 year old rebuilds. Farmers diesel 300s

Last month i had a injector stay open. Made it smoke like crazy and the motor shut down then hydrolocked... towed it home and pulled glow plugs. Turned the key and waited... #8 inj was the culprit. Put a spare injector in... now same problem again but different injector.
These injectors are 300/200s about 5 years old built by farmers diesel with about 60k on them.
Are they all starting to fail on me? Or is there something else going on?

1996 crew cab long box. 3.73s, auto 493/1135 stockish auto trans.

Never heard of them.
Probably junk. Being a 200 nozzle, I wouldn't be surprised if they're cracking.

From what I've heard, farmers where not the best quality. I would pull then and have them gone through. I would recommend rosewood.

KC diy 66, Full force 160/100 and custom tunes from PHP
Banks intercooler and full 4" exhaust, Diy S&B intake
