tape is right out.
Have a look at the end, if you see a big groove cut into the rounded end,
it was overtightened... replacement is really the only option. Try
tightening them a tad more firmly, but leakers are usually leakers.
Be sure it is the injector line, not the return line. Return line should be
new, if not, it loves to leak.
Only fiddle around running engine's injector lines with a piece of stiff
paper when looking for leaks, do not use your fingers, ever ever ever. The
pressure there, if a pinhole, can inject diesel fuel, causing lotsa problems
(emboli, etc). Fingers do not grow back. careful.
