Diagram - Fuel Lines to IP on OM617

Does anyone have an exploded view of the IP/Fuel filter housing area showing the part numbers of the clear fuel lines (two) running between.

Have a nasty, intermittant leak leaving a puddle of fuel on the
ground every second or third day. Thinking of replacing my lines and crush washers to eliminate them as a cause.

I've searched, but no luck.

Thanks.

Where does the fuel hit the ground? I had a leaky IP primer pump and a cracked primary filter.

Send Roy or Phil and e-mail at Fastlane.

I would like to replace the clear fuel lines as well, as I know mine are original and quite brittle.

Fuel does eat up the engine mounts, so be prepared to replace them.

I have already replaced the primer pump. The fuel pump just
below the primer pump is the source of the puddle. I'm thinking
now that there may be some leakage at the clear lines and
the fuel is running down the line to the fuel pump.

The odd thing is that it only happens every second or third
day?

I have heard that the lift pump can go out, but I do not know if they leak or not. When you replaced the primer pump, did you replace the copper crush washer as well? Leak every 2-3 days does not sound like a hard line leak to me, I have seen some strange things that do not fit in standard problems or trouble shooting.
