My guess is it could it be fuel draining out from where you disconnected the fuel line and when things were jarred or moved it allowed additional fuel to then drain out. Could have come from the head or the accumulator.

The fuel leak is external so it should not be from an injector leaking down. That would be contained in the intake port, cylinder, and maybe make it to the exhaust tube. For it to make it to the outside you would have to have a very large existing oil leak.

Would suspect that an injector that is not holding pressure should not be able to dump enough fuel to hydro-lock a turbo cylinder unless some way the fuel pumps were kept running a long time without the motor running and the metering plate was depressed.

If there is a leak at the connection between the injector and the fuel line or the fuel line and the head, that could leak externally.
