Does the bus have rear heat? If so it look similar to mine that has a coolant shutoff valve that the driver can operate to block heat to the rear system.

Gasket sealer is not recommended ever for the valve cover gaskets.

A fuel bowl delete is in my plans when mine starts to leak. It isnt cheap but highly worth it.

I understand. It does take a good smack to get them to seat properly. It is very hard to get them seated in the van body... I think on one of them we used a pry bar to ease it down int the bore.

When you did the orings, did you also replace the copper crush washer at the tip of the injectors? Its possible that one of them did not come out with the injector and now has 2 stacked up inside.

That is most likely the problem. Electrical tape is a better solution. But ideally that needs to be spliced with new wires. Eventually the water will get in there and corrode the copper.
