Westerbeke 35B Fuel leak


My Westerbeke 35B has been increasingly smelling diesel recently. After cleaning it then running it, I figured out it was coming from one of the injection pump fitting that take the fuel to the injectors. Has anyone faced that problem, and is the injection pump a system easy to work on, or would it be better to call a professional mechanics?

Re: Westerbeke 35B Fuel leak

Is it a leaking fitting that just needs nipping up or a cracked injector pipe? Tissue paper is very useful for locating leaks.
