Just an update...
We replaced the o-rings/washer on this injector and it wasn't 200 miles and we blew another one.
I would recommend, and it has probably been recommended already somewhere else on this site, that anytime you take your motor apart, go ahead and spend the little bit of money and replace the injector sleeves too.
There is a place that will sell you an inexpensive kit that includes the sleeve insertion tool and a tap (I think it's 3/4"). You simply tap some threads into the sleeve, attach a 3/4" bolt onto a slide hammer, screw the bolt into the newly cut threads, pull the old sleeve out with the slide hammer, and put the new ones in with the insertion tool. Be sure to use threadlock when you put the new sleeves in.
Since we replaced the sleeves we have had no more problems.
