Fuel Leak

I have a puddle of fuel between #2 and #3 injector. I had earlier changed all the "O" rings but that didn't stop the leak. I actually thought it was the #1 fuel injector. Nevertheless, I bought only (1) injector (I know, I usually get all four), but for the quick fix, I just bought one. Well I changed injector #2(that were the leak looked like it was coming from) but that didn't help.

My question is, has anyone heard of that fuel rail that sits on the injectors leaking??

Or is it possible that there might be a crack in one of the bezels? BTW my car is a '88 Turbo 5spd.

I've heard of the rail cracking. I also had one where the injector would not seal where it fits into the rail. Changed the rail and problem gone.

The fuel rail on my 87 cracked and needed to be replaced. Are you running a AFPR? Some AFPR are bulky and heavy (like my BBK was), the extra weight hanging on the rail may cause it to break.

So far I'm running everything stock. BTW where can I get a fuel rail. Dealerships don't carry them and streamline parts places like Napa, O'Reillys or Rock Auto don't carry these. I guess a donor car from a junkyard would work?

It maybe the fuel rail or check your O rings one more time sometimes when putting the injectors on the rail will cut into the new O rings, happened twice to me.
