    Injectors look like this. Reman. match set or clean these?

    Had to pull the fuel rail to see if I buggered it when replacing the pulsation damper. What's the best route forward? A matched set sounds best, or am I better of just cleaning these and put new rubbers on them?

    3FE What's inside the fuel rail?

    Had a leaking fuel damper. Replaced it and replaced the fuel pressure regulator. Truck ran fine before this, just leaked fuel from the damper. Now it runs at idle, and is fine up to 1400 rpm or so, but starves for fuel above that.

    FJ62 is this a heat shield?

    How many miles are too many to bother fixing

    I still put about 20K a year on it, but the power is fading, leaks are everywhere, and before I do the rear seal again, I'll see what the consensus is.

    Oil leaks, easiest difficult most necessary

    Truck has pretty high miles. Some of the repairs over the years fixed a few, but the fact it leaked never seemed to matter much, passive corrosion protection was fine by me. But these day's I hear about galley plugs and oil cooler O rings, maybe I should care more. And the "I parked here"...
