the injector pump loosing prime like that is apparently from the timing belt not being tensioned correctly, the pump has a simple bushing and if the belt is to tight it will wear it out, not sure if the bushing can be replaced, but the seal is a good fix! better then shelling out $1,000 for a new injector pump, or $700 for a used on, I think I paid $11 for that same seal incase I get the rabbit running.
Honda's with carburators have a brass check valve in their fuel line too... never checked on what exacty it does...
