[DML] Fuel distributor o-rings



I have experienced this a couple of years ago. It was the cause of a frustrating hot start problem, due to the lack of holding pressure when hot. Every time it failed, a small chunk of the o-ring was missing. I went through about four of them within a week. It had all to do with the O-ring material. I forget where I bought the O-rings that failed, but they had a flat dull appearance. I then went to CAP autoparts, and asked them for fuel resistant O-rings. I matched their sizes as close to what I had, and I haven't had to change it since. The material in the good O-ring had a shiny slippery appearance instead of flat and dull. I am sure someone in the group will fill us in on the technical details of the material, but you should be able to easily remedy this with the right material.
