So went to take the car out of the garage and discovered a river of fuel flowing down from the firewall / bell housing area, as best I can tell from looking underneath the car at ground level ( that is, the car was not up in the air)
And it was a heavy flow. Not dripping but running. I checked the fuel line connection at the filter and going from filter to carbs and all was dry. Looking at the fuel line layout I see it runs along the bulkhead and makes a turn down to a union.
What might cause such a high volume leak? I don’t see how the connection would loosen, but I suppose that’s possible. It shouldn’t rust through, as my car is a California car with very little signs of corrosion anywhere. So not sure what to even look for.
Any ideas of what might have gone wrong?
