It looks like someone used a white type of form a gasket between the IP and lift pump. It is also moist in that area above, and wet on the bottom side.

What does sealing up the lift pump? An o-ring and gasket? As a temporary fix can black rtv be used in place of gasket?

Is there anywhere else this style of injector pump would leak from?
