Derek, sounds like you're in deep dodo.

DFI if IAB!  If the shaft seal wasn't leaking or sucking air into the pump,
DFI!  No need to replaace the banjo fitting's static seals.  No need to
replace anything not leaking!  Usually just one cyl head o-ring does it.
No need for high torque on these cyl heads, screw driver tight is fine.  But
you must use antiseize on the o-ring when installing.
