Quick fuel question regarding Furl Return Line

So my Fuel Return line, south end of the bay (closest to radiator on the pressure regulator) is leaking a little fuel. I just replaced my fuel injectors and its leaking a little fuel. Causing hard starts along with a Distributor cap that needs replacing. Anyway, does this line require a seal? It wasnt leaking fuel before I removed it and I was pretty gentle with it to not brake that plastic hook on there. Its not a gratuitous amount of fuel but something I will/need to fix.

I think it has an o-ring. Did you make sure the surface was clean before putting the line back on?

If it has an o-ring thats not an issue. I have an abundance of extra fuel rated ones. And no... I did not. I was in a hurry and I know that is a terrible excuse to be sloppy.

Easy fix, pop it off, if gunk has it leaking clean it, and double check the o-ring.
