I've had my '73 450SLC for a whole month. Its about due for its first
glitch. This morning, after cranking her up on a cold morning, I get a
strong wif of gasoline from under the hood. Open the hood to find
fuel streaming out of the cold start injector near the front of the engine.
Its not coming from the hose, but from the housing that is used to
mount the injector.
My question is, do I need to replace the whole injector, or are there
seals (O rings?) that are likely to cause the problem that can be replaced
without having to buy a new injector? The service manual is no help.
