hello, and greetings from a novice but proud 930 mechanic.

I too have got a fuel leak, on a 1976 car. Hope someone could please help identify what is leaking and how to do repairs.

Symptons are:
- fuel leaks to underside of the car, around where gearbox is.
- leaks about 2-3 drops to ground per second when engine is cold
-- does not leak when engine is hot, or possibly the fuel evaporates from hot engine (fuel smell is strong)
- I have removed some parts to locate the leak. Please could some one identify what is leaking, and how to change the leaking tube? What to remove to be able to change the part?

Picture 1 --- overall engine bay

Picture 2 --- leaking tube

Picture 3 --- leaking tube (another angle)

Looks like the leaking tube is possible to detach from one end. (the one pointing towards front of the car). The other end has some sort of a nozzle, but could not see or feel how it is attached, and to where.
