Do you actually SEE the fuel leaking back there or are you just assuming because you see it running down the back of the engine? I ask because the valley of the engine drains back there so the fuel leak can be coming from anywhere on top of the engine and it will collect in the valley and drain down the back passenger side of the engine.

Yes you actually see it, once the engine is off I let it clear off then crank it up it will push alittle bubble out the fuel will gather there, theres a line of silicone that it gathers on & you can see it build up more & more as it runs.....

Well the only place that far back would be either the fuel pump hoses or the ports on the back of the head
