I have replaced the O rings between the upper manifold before and when I took it apart the last tine there was fuel outside the area where the O rings were on # 2 and #5 cylinders.

    Thanks Roy, The fact that Ford has a new style of O rings tells me Two things. One; There was problem with the old ones. Two; Maybe Felpro is still putting out the old style.
