HPOP res. Leaking down.

I have a 97 f250 and the HPOP Res keeps leaking down. It will not star untill you add oil through the check plug. i have done the injector o-rings in the last 5k miles. it has 175k miles it has had a new front cover and i guess a couple LPOP's prior to my purchase. Where do i start? is there a bad injector, HPOP, the LPOP not correctly set? how can i test it before i just throw parts?? Please help i dont want to go to the dealer! lol

One way to Ck injectors is to remove valve covers. clean the oil deflectors with brake cleaner or something else. then put a rag or a piece of paper under the deflectors and let it set to see if it leaks oil. If it leaks replace that injector.

If you pull the injectors for any reason you have to replace the o-ring no matter what??? And I didnt torgue the injectors when i installed them after i replace the o-rings. Should i pull them to see it any of the o-ring get to any excessive heat due to improper seating before i do anything else or will seeing if the injector leakes under the deflector tell me if the o-rings are bad???

Let it set over night or so. The deflector I am talking about is the alum. Piece on the valley side of the injector that is held on by allen head bolt.
