I've noticed a considerable amount of diesel on the garage floor lately.. At least about a 8-12 inch diameter circle here are some pictures please chime if you can lead me into the right direction

Most common is the fuel bowl... Can't tell to good.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

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

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.
