water leak fixed

 In my absence (work), Brian solved the water leak.

He removed the pipe and found the gasket to be dry.  Plus, the nuts were not very tight.  Figuring those two things were the culprit, the gasket was reinstalled and some form-a-gasket applied.

To get to the lower nut, a crow's foot wrench is needed.  No other wrench would work without interfering with the pipe.

That should do the trick.  On to the fuel leak....

John Gaertner sent me these pictures.  A photographic Jenny.  Hey, it gives me ideas.  If I could only find a camera.

More soon, enjoy!
