I did the o-rings on my 87 5kq as well and it didn't do the
trick.  I ended up going to the 'recyclers'  and pulling the
dpr off a donor.  I was actually surprised to find it on the
car because most of the donors around here are picked clean
before I get a chance to take a peek.  I think mine
developed a crack somewhere, but I don't know for sure, i.e.
couldn't see any.  The used dpr cost me $10 cdn.  Dealer in
Nova Scotia wants ~$350 for one of these babies!  >choke<
No more leak tho'.  (hands pressed tightly together and held
aloft toward the heavens - just in case:)
