Sounds like a typical fuel leak up in the valley. It's likely we've all delt with it on these old 'strokes. The fuel bowl is appearant right in the middle if the valley. It can leak from several points, some being rebuildable (orings. Order from bob at dieselorings.com). The old rubber fuel lines could be leaking too as could the fuel pump which is in the back of the valley under the turbo pedistal. For the price of a replacement fuel bowl and pump you can just about build yourself an electric fuel system and take all that crap out of the valley. Do a search, there's plenty of write ups. As it sits now its a matter of locating the leak (99% it's up in the valley and draining out the back of the block), and replacing, rebuilding or deleting and going e fuel.
