I noticed what appears to be fuel around one of the injectors. It seems to be a two piece assembly. I don't think it is the connection of the fuel line from the injector pump.

I've no experience with deisel injectors. Does it need to be rebuilt? Simply tighten it up?

Get some carb/choke cleaner, spray around the injector, basically clean it up, start the engine and watch that injector. See if it still leaks. If so and it's not the line, then it's the injector body. Best bet is to replace or get a rebuilt injector. Check the others while you're at it. Although 114k isn't high mileage for a diesel, you might want to look at avoiding problems in the future with the others.

Be sure to replace the injection return hoses first. This is the most likely place for it to leak. If not, I have replaced a few of the delivery lines recently.
