Fuel Leak question?

I ve read a few posts about it. Still looking for some help. Valley is full of fuel and its dripping down block/tranny. My question is i've heard its either the Fuel bowl leaking or the Pass side fuel line going to the back of the pass head.

Problem is its freezing out. Too cold to get in there right now and soak up the fuel/ try to figure it out. I've already purchased all the orings/rubber pieces i need to replace with new. But what are the chances its the fuel line? Is it more common to be the bowl or line? I do know i'll have to diagnose this when its warmer, its just bugging me right now thinking about it.

Wad-up some paper towel and put it underneath the Fuel Drain to see if it appears there first...

I had the same problem. I think more times than not it's the fuel bowl that's leaking rather than the fuel line, not saying it doesn't happen however. I would re-seal the fuel bowl just to be safe, and if it still leaks afterwards, then you can turn your attention to the fuel line.

both good ideas. thanks guys. I have fuel in the front and rear of the valley. If it was the line would the fuel really reach the front of the valley? or just stay in the firewall side of the valley and run down the back?
