6.0 injectors leaking down weep hole

I have a 6.0 early 03 with 206k I am having injector leak down and last oil report I had fuel in the oil. I have replaced all injector o rings and I also tested with uv dye. I replaced a injector for a extreme leak what looked to be out of the weep hole. I am still leaking down over a 24 hr time span, has anyone else had an injector fail by leaking out of the weep hole?

Gotta agree never seen a weep hole on any injector I have ever pulled.


Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink

It's there. Call alliant power and talk to the tech about it. Older c94 injectors can scar and then leak out of vent / weep hole under ledger on the hold down on the injector. It is there so it does not get air locked when oil fires the plunger. His words not mine.
