Hi Derek,

Look in your yellow pages under Seals, O-ring.  If no, try Bearings.
I get mine in Hayward, CA  Bay Seal.

I'm still working the Bosch rebuild parts source search.  I've given up on
finding an e-mail contact on the Bosch web site.  All are dead ends.  A
friend is a Volvo parts distributor and sells a lot of Bosch, so am trying
to find a link thru him.  Will post anything positive.

These O-rings on the injectors are static seals and were in good shape when
I removed my injectors (my 3Bing of the 7A project) even though showing some
signs of minor leaking as you are seeing.  So with a clean up and assembly
lube would be fine to reinstal, IMO.

What was wrong with your Dist?  Drive gear broken?  I do have a temporary
spare (the project dist) if it could buy time for you.
