There is a return line bolted to the back of your head reach your hand back there you'll feel it see if it's loose

Worked on truck. Removed the bracket for lifting motor to get to back of motor return line was clean #6 fuel line seemed a little loose with just a touch with fuel line wrench it came loose at the injertor. So I gave it a little turn maybe 3/4 flat. Ran truck didn't see anything but it has seemed to leak over night, so I put a scoth towel around the injector and fuel line check tomorrow see what happens Thanks for advise. Hope is this simple.

OK it's been a week now, have not seen any sign of a leak so it was that easy. Thanks to everyone for the advise.
