Fuel leak under pump

I sopped up all the fuel in my valley to get a better idea where exactly it is coming from. Looks like it is coming from under the pump. I seem to remember from my searching that this means the fuel pump needs replacing, but I wanted to confirm that before I start throwing parts at her. I ran my hand under the hoses and the came back dry.

you can see the fuel shining in the picture.

Thanks in advance for any help/recommendations.

There is a weep hole at the pump base and that is probably your leak. If your are going in there to replace the pump, get new hoses, banjo bolt washers, and might as well reseal the fuel filter bowl too. I would recommend (if not going to efuel) getting a new OEM pump (Riff Raff and Diesel O-Rings both sell it. Cheers!

I'd just like to add that if it's been leaking for a while the pump will more than likely break from the oring swelling up, if it does be careful not to drop the plunger and the broken piece down inside the motor. And I second what Patrick said about a new pump not a reman. I have to put 2 pumps on one right after the other because of them leaking and they were carted brand fuel pumps but my guess is that they had been on the shelf forever.

Although you do probably need a new pump, I would first put a 1 1/4" wrench on the banjo bolt and make sure it is tight (40 ft/lbs.) before I changed the pump. Just my 2 cents...

It turned a little bit. I sopped up all the fuel and we will see if that did the trick.
