Fuel leak

Now we have a fuel leak from that nut looking fitting with the paper towel underneath it, steady drip only while engine running. Click image for larger version

That looks like a rotary injection pump to me, but I'm not familiar enough with it to offer advice other than did you try to tighten it? I'm sure others will chime in soon.

VERY similar to the leak from one of the levers on my Perkins 6.354 CAV injector pump. I had it rebuilt in a shop that specializes in that sort of thing. I've seen the insides of those pumps and I don't trust myself to put everything back together correctly.

FYI, mine got steadily worse over time.

If that is a banjo fitting above the rag, you might just need to find some replacement banjo washers.
