In job # 7.3-1603 'Testing fuel pressures and internal leaktightness'

On a 103 engine, and assuming that this applies to your 1.6 which I'm almost certain it does.

The article reads:

"5. Check control plunger in fuel distributor for leaks. Briefly press air flow sensor plate (84) down fully and hold tight in this position; a a slight leak quantity is permissible when this is done."

SO, if this is what you're doing, then the small fuel you see coming out is OK!

Good luck
