leaking diesel injectors

Does anyone have any knowledge on torque to line in fuel injector on 2.5 na diesel?
Had injectors rebuilt reinstalled & there is a small amount of weepage on 3 of 4 injectors?
This is not much but I assume there should be no weepage?

I did post this with another post & decided to post separate.

Loosen and retighten with a good quaility wrench or flare style wrench . There is no torque spec. Tighten until no leaks.

It is possible you may have to dress the metal line end with sandpaper carefully if it has a buildup of crap on it.

Good luck

Whats the problem? Are you having problems starting it after changing filters?
