Question Where is the Fuel Bowl Drain Outlet?

I want to extend my fuel bowl drain line with a length of fuel hose, problem is I don't know where the fuel drain line runs and am sick of trying to feel my way around under the bowl. Does anyone have a picture or can point me to a picture of how the stock fuel drain is routed/comes off the bowl so I can find the darn thing without taking my fuel bowl loose?

Being Lazy I know.... but easier/less messy to ask than open the pet**** and watch for fuel

Thanks

Mine goes down the front of the engine and comes out by the crank pulley on the passenger side. It's just an open-ended tube.

Metal tube, plain end spitting out towards the radiator and mounted to the front of the passenger side head. You can see it from the passenger isde fenderwell.

I push ed on a length of hose and ran it all the way to the bottom of the radiator for drip free bowl draining. It's been on there for quite some time now.

Open the fuel drain valve and you will see where the fuel pors out!!! It is a metal tube that comes down the front of the engin on the left side. I added a piece of fuel line on mine, really keeps the fuel from splashing all over the place when draining the fuel bowl.
