injector cup leak

I rebuilt the engine in an early 99 450. I replaced all the cups and it has one that will not quit leaking. I have replaced the cup 3 times and it will not seal off. I am using the CAT glue also. Does anyone have any suggestions before I have to send the truck back not running :shrug:

Make sure the head is clean and there aren't any burs or nicks in it. Also make sure the cup is fully seated. I think the ford book says to use blue locktite on the tip and around the top to seal it.

I thought it was the 242 or something like that. The green stuff is the permanent sleeve retainer loctite. Red is just a step above blue for thread locker.

Thanks for the advice. It set for a couple of days, we replaced the orings on the injector again and it has not leaked yet.
