After reviewing various threads and instructions on rebuilding Fuel Distributor I have decided to go with a reman FD from CIS Flowtech out of Alabama. Likely won't arrive for a couple of weeks so in the meantime I'll look into changing out injector O-rings etc.
You're welcome.

Don't be scared of changing that control piston seal. It's not that big of a deal and is nothing like doing a rebuild. Of course, if you have the resources, it's great to start with a fresh fuel distributor. Just saying, don't be put off by getting into it a little.
