Fuel leak left side of engine...

I have a minor fuel leak. It seems to originate at the rear of the driver's side head. Nothing in the valley. The leak first is apparent on the outside of the head, just at the rear underneath the exhaust manifold. Then runs down the back of the block and forms a drip on the flywheel dust shield. Any ideas? Thanks

Could have a injector stuck open and blew the head gasket.

My brother had a bad injector and fuel was leaking out of the #5 exhaust manifold.

if its not leaking from the fuel bowl or fuel lines,
id check the fitting like timmy said. it is a pain to get to, a 5/16 8 point socket is the easiest way to tighten it down, or use vicegrips.
