    Fuel leaking like crazy

    Gents, after noticing a leak from a faulty petcock diaphragm, I installed a new rebuild kit and got all new hoses etc for the petrol lines as well as the vacuum lines.
    Put it all together, but test fired it before dropping tank back in place and tightening everything up, fuel was leaking like crazy at the carb input lines right at the carbs, took hoses off double checked everything and reinstalled hoses and factory clamps.
    Fired her up and still leaking like crazy at that junction, are the fuel to carb inlets supposed to swivel up and down?
    Mine do, and the leak seems to be there rather than the new hoses etc.
    Please advise, Thanks Gentlemen
    1997 Bird btw

    Sure can Johnny. But before you do I'd replace all the orings. That's what I'll do of it's here. They are probably original equipment and hardened. When you moved them I'm betting each one clicked. That was the sound of the seal that had been holding the gas at bay breaking free. You'll have to resynch but it's for the best trust me.

    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.
