testing for a hpo leak

I was talking to a local diesel mechanic and he told me how he checks for a hpo leak (the injector o-rings). He told me to take the oil line off one head and plug it. he said a powerstroke will run on 4cyl. if it wont stay running you have a hpo leak on the unplugged side. Does this sound like bs or has anyone else heard of it.

Ok, I'll bite.


For $hits and giggles, how did he say to plug the line? Do you just put the line back on the head and do the same for the other side?

not sure how he plugged the line. dont even know what threads they are. he acted like he just capped it . and if ran do the same to the other side. he said its a good way to eliminate which side it is if you dont want to do them all.

just wondering if anyone else has heard of it.
Btw he is a good diesel mech. and knows his stuff.
