Default Leaking SuperBee

After being in storage for somewhat more than 1 year, I started my gas start SuperBee today. It started well, but its leaking fuel from the front of the turbine while running. See video :
http://youtu.be/NiD19NrEbUk Could it be a connection issue under the front cover? What screws need to be removed to take out the cover (#1 or #2, other?)?

Its not under warranty...

Thanks
Edgar

Hello Edgar
I think the leak is because a broken O-ring below the Festo connector
Take out just the #1 scrwes and pull the cover to the front
You will need some Viton O-rings #2-002 and a small pin (and some patience) to take the original one out
Regards
Juan
