should i replace injector o-rings when changing injectors

I pulled the injectors out of one truck (150,000 miles)and want to put them in my other truck. The truck ran fine before I pulled them out, but when I looked at the injector and the cups, there are stains on the bottom edges of them like oil or something. Should I put new orings on them or is this common?

I would definitely do the o rings. The oil stains are common.

Once had a signature that had some bad ass stuff on it. Now its back to crap.

You will need to replace the exterior O rings as well as the copper crush washer located at the injector nozzle base. You can get them at your local dealership or international dealer or http://shop.fullforcediesel.com/Injector-Orings_c3.htm or http://www.dieselorings.com/index.ph...cat=23&group=6
