Question leaky injectors

I have a 1987 f250 diesel; dont know if its a powerstroke. I am experiencing fuel leaking from several injectors. the truck runs good except its a little slow starting after sitting a few days. Can i just replace the orings and seals or do I need new injectors? thanks for any help, jim

you should be able just to do the rings, but i would make sure you dont go threw the work and put back in bad or failing injectors

Leaking where? around the plastic return lines, or around the metal high pressure lines. Most likely the return lines. There is a kit you can buy from Orielly's auto parts that gives you new plastic fittings, orings, hose, clamps, and copper washers for under the injectors.
If your injectors are working fine, don't worry about the copper washers. Just replace the plastic fittings, orings on the injector tops, hoses and clamps.

The kit is called a "fuel injector install kit".

Good luck
