    take out the injector again clean the body, clean the sealing copper o-ring and re-flatten it, clean the injector hole ... do not cut it again.... place it all back and put some grease around the body of the injector... that should stop it from leaking.

    put it on a flat surface and apply pressure to it or put it in a vice and close it, when it holds it and give it a 30 degree turn... the reason why i say this is because the injector seat isn't completely flat and when it's back in it's place the pressure of the injector should seal it off since copper is soft... that is how it works but for it to seal properly the ring needs to be straight again... it's one of the reasons why they tell you to not re-use them if you remove the injector but if you re-flatten it than they can be re-used.

    just don't apply to much pressure so it doesn't deform.

    next time instead of re-cutting the injector seat just clean it. As every time you cut it you add more depth to the seat... and at a certain point the injector body won't be able to apply enough pressure to the 0-ring to seal it off...

    Hopefully you haven't overcut the seat. Are you reusing the same coppers repeatedly or have you checked that the copper washers are actually removed from the seats as they tend to get comfortable in 1.9 150 at least in my limited expirience. It's not a bad ideal to try to shopvac the area to reduce the amount of foreign debris that can fall into the seats or into the ports directly. Also cleaning the injector (in the case it is a 1.9) isn't a bad idea as the buildup can also aggrevate the sealing situation.
