Diesel leaking around injector

Post by pauljbl »

There is a puddle of clean diesel around 2 of the injectors. It runs fine no chuffing sound. It doesn't look like its coming from any of the pipes they are all dry. When I rev it up it looks like it is coming from where the plate is which holds the injector in place. Would a injector leak diesel from the middle of the injector?

I have included a picture with a arrow from where it looks like leaking

Did you check the leak-off pipes?
They get brittle and crack with heat and age.

I havnt checked for cracks but couldn't see any liquid on them. They all seem dry. Could it leak from anywhere else?

I can see spray marks there, which does look like the leak off pipes.
