If its not one thing its another

So I finally got the Stancor relay bought and installed, and its still a ***** to start in the morning if its not plugged in. So I noticed a diesel smell the other day when I was installing it but didn't see anything since I had just power washed everything. In poking around today I finally found the leak, its dripping out from the drain valve assembly into the valley. What I don't understand is can I be getting air in through this leak and if so how does plugging in the truck effect this?http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/a...k/101_1010.jpg

the fuel leak is fixed, got the o-rings from Diesel O-rings so no more diesel leak, but my truck is still a hard starter, I now have replaced the Glow plugs, GPR and under valve cover gaskets as well as under valve cover wire harness, why in the heck is it so hard to start? Do I need to start looking into Fuel pressure and HPOP pressures?

Exclamation

"If its not one thing its another"


Ain't that the truth?!


And not to hijack the thread, but could this also be causing a rough running condition with my truck? If in fact air is getting drawn in where the o-rings are bad?

Thanks!

When the truck sits, does the oil in the HPOP res. leak back down? I might let the truck sit for a few hours, go out there and pull the inspection plug and see if the oil has leaked down at all.
