crawl atop the motor, and look down inside the valley. Try wiping everything up , then fire motor. See where the leak is. Maybe fuel bowl or the p/s fuel line would be my guess

yea especially check the water/fuel drain valve. most time the o rings go bad and draw up. you can replace them with the viton o rings.

cut the line right at the fitting with a sawzall, then just use a ratchet to take the fitting out of the head. i did it this way super easy

i also moved the wrench under the pedestal and was able to access the fitting with my hand/wrench under the turbo pedestal.

that way i had a perfect angle and could tighten it down nice and tight.
