Hello can anyone recommend anything that could use to fix leak where fuel pipe from the pump meets the injector to seal a leak? Thanks.

The repair would depend on the fitting that connects to the injector.
If it is a flange fit then look for a crack in the pipe and if you found one have a new pipe made up with the new flare.
If it is an "O" ring seal replace the "O" ring.
It would help with a picture to get the best and correct reply but this will give you something to consider until then or you can post a picture. Pictures will need to be compressed before adding to the Forum.

New steel compression olives are readily available.
Cut off the damaged nipple and fit a new olive. Pass fuel through the pipe before connecting to the injector to be certain no foreign material enters the injector.

Is the pipe going into the injector straight?

Sometimes if it's a bit wonky that can cause leaks, and giving the pipe a little tweak so it enters the injector at the proper angle does the trick.
