new fuel leak

Yesterday and today I managed to install my hoses between the pump and fuel bowl and replace the fuel filter/cap without incident. However, now it's spitting out between the fuel bowl and the thing that bolts up to it on the driver's side (not sure what it's called). Is there a gasket that's supposed to be between them? It didn't have one on before. And if not what should I do?

The part that bolts to the fuel bowl is the Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR). There is an o-ring at the joint along with the orifice vent (otherwise known as the FPR screen ... which has another o-ring). There is also another leak spot where the fuel line come into the bottom of the FPR. This kit would have all the O-rings you would need for resealing the FPR: Fuel Regulator Repair Kit or you could get this kit to reseal the entire fuel bowl: http://www.dieselorings.com/1994-199...-bowl-kit.html

I pulled and rebuilt the FPR today and installed it again no problem. Now, instead of squirting across the engine like the old leak did, it just gurgles out of the same spot between the bowl and FPR. What do I do now?

I guess I would make sure that the regulator body or fuel bowl is not cracked in the immediate area (or even some defect in the o-ring sealing area). Cheers!

I couldn't pick up on any cracks. Gonna get AAA to tow it to the shop down the road in the morning for a diagnosis.

Diff fuel leak but didn't want to start a new thread. The line that slips into the bottom of the FPR is leaking, lasted a month and a half after the rebuild. I put a new o-ring in and still dripping. Guess I'm the king of fuel leaks I just need it to last until I get my e-fuel parts together.
