Good news then Larry. I hope it was worth all the effort.
You have to wonder though, if a gasket still needs RTV sealant too, surely the gasket is not actually doing it’s job.
There’s no guarantee that even if a past owner had been in there before that they would have known about changing the hose off the pump. Or more likely work done by a garage who would only do the bare minimum required, rather than any preventative work?

Naki, all is well now - thanks!

Other late model (93/94) owners I've spoken to who've had failures on the rail all found there was no gasket fitted so I'm guessing it was a delete for those years and re-introduced on the X300.

And who said 94 models “benefit” from all the developments? They take with one hand and give with the other.
