I can't help, but if you go here...
Replacement O-rings for Diesel Engines
there is intructions on the "right" way to do it (according to those guys anyway...I have no idea)if you HAVE to do it for one reason or another. Personally, I might give it a try, but only AFTER I have resigned to buying a new pump, just in case......

are you talking about the "non serviceable" plug on the HPOP? If you removed it without knowing you probably lost the check ball. If you cannot find that check ball and replace it in the pump you will have to buy a new pump.

Scuffy said he learned the hard way. He had to replace the pump I figure if he cant fix it it cant be fixed.

if you removed the do not remove plug on the high pressure pump, you might as well get you a new pump , for one ive have successfully fixed a couple by doing that , did it last NO , it will be back loose again, the problem is the plug when works lose damages the threads of the pump housing , you might as well by a pump
