Oil leak at injection pump 3406b

My pump is leaking oil and an oval cover towards the front on the pump but it's located on the inside part of the pump between the block. It also has one on the opposite side of the pump. Can I just remove it and clean it and put silicone or go buy the gasket? Does this cover hold anything inside? Looks kinda tight but I think I can remove it. Thanks for the help

They are orings, not gaskets. They've gotten hard, brittle and square. Get new ones from Cat. The back one can be changed.....but its tricky. Just covers....no flying parts.

Other trucks:1980 KW Ext hood, 1982 Kenworth Cabover Aerodyne (BJ and the Bear) 2000 and 2003 Kenworth W900's. 2003 Pete EXHD. All Caterpillar Power. My 2003 has an MBN I converted to 6NZ. Early 550 file, 211-3025 squirts. 800 cam. Acert twins via custom mount. ARP head bolts.

You'll have to pull the compressor.....then you can get right to it.

Are you sure its the inspection cover on the back? There is an Allen plug on the back, in the oil rail that is bad to loosen and seep oil. May be it, too......
