    Edit: went back again and I must have been cross-eyed (dark shop, very tired eyes) because I DID have the correct 17/32 bit chucked up. I don't know what the problem is but it looks like I can get an injector o-ring that will fit and work. LS1 injector to an LS2 intake uses a fatter 15.25mm o-ring with the same ID.

      Sounds a bit like my "carpentry". Measure twice, cut it three times, and it's still too short. Hope the o-ring fixes it!

        Me too. I measured the crap out of everything this time. Holes are all ~0.565". (The bit is 0.531") The new o-rings are spec'd at 0.600" to 0.610" (0.035" to 0.45" crush)

        The stock Ford fuel rails measure 0.520" ID. The o-rings that came on these Deka 80's measure 0.560". (0.040" crush) So I should probably be good.

            New blue o-rings arrived Saturday. I didn't have time to really mess with them but did test fit and quickly snap a pic. Seems to fit the rail really well. Hope they work.

              Well they worked great on both sides up to 20psi. The ones on the passenger side started to weep at 45psi though. I ordered a new fuel rail blank today and will try this again. This time I am going to use a 1/2" bit instead of the 17/32". I think my drill press has just enough wobble that the holes end up being a bit oversize.

                Have you considered using one of these?

                  Yes I have seen those, but they are danged expensive for only 4 holes!

                    Moving sucks. Moving in the rain really sucks. That is all.

                        Yeah, 8 years ago. Haha.

                        We "what if'd" one time too many and someone REALLY wanted our house. Good market, very motivated buyer and we own a property we could move right into. It worked out perfect. Goodbye big house with a million stairs, hello smaller house with NO stairs!
