CCV mod leak

i did the CCV mod this last week and it made me happy
but when i flipped the doghouse around i thought i seated the seals right but i guess i didn't cause it's leaking slightly now, but enough to get residue on the head cover.
so i was just wondering how you guys who got the seals to seat right?

I don't know, since I haven't done it yet...but I read that they often swell up and don't quite go back in right, so for the price....I just ordered some new ones from here....
Replacement O-rings for Diesel Engines
Hopefully I won't have trouble with mine when I do it.

The o-rings def swell after time and probably need replaced. You can get the o-rings from the dealership too. Part number F4TZ-6769-C
I think they are around 1.33 a piece msrp.

If you have this problem and are in a hurry, you can buy new O-rings at any decent hardware store that work great. I think I got a 2 pack for around 50 cents or so. Dieselorings.com is the way to go though, Bob will definitely take care of you.

I did the same thing over the weekend, it fits real tight now. But I got the real one on order.
