I'm no mechanic but I've been chasing miss issue on my 98 and from what I've read and seen first hand; its not a seal thats leaking; its that carbon gums up those poppets and they either dont open or they get stuck open thus leaking fuel.

Its best to replace the entire thing with the upgraded Multifuel version that swaps the poppets for mini injectors. I did mine; super easy .. got one for under 300 bucks from Rockauto and is ACDelco brand.
