Fuel leak problem...

I have a fuel leak from the rubber lines on the back of the engine. What are they called and how hard is it to replace them?

Ya. I was told it could also be an o-ring on the bowl drain and that would be easy to replace. Gotta look into it a little more after work tomorrow,but it's in the general area.

I figured. It runs fine for now but this weekend's weather is looking quite beautiful... Just one more thing to do.

The fuel could be leaking out the lift pump weep hole and running back the valley.
The fuel bowl drains are available at napa and fairly inexpensive

It's coming out between the bowl and pump. I'm going to take it apart one day this week and at least put new rings on it and the lines if the dealer has them.
