The leak was from the banjo fitting washers.
Thanks for the info, though.

Is this leaking from the valve that you use to sump the tank, when checking fuel quality for a preflight? I'm not sure about a "banjo fitting". If it IS the valve under the tank, on/under the wing, it may just be the o-ring in the valve, with a nick or a bit of something stuck in it. Not a hard fix, esp. if you have three hands!

My A&P doesn't doubt that you are correct. He would just feel
more comfortable having documentation showing the assy.

There are soft aluminum washers on both sides of the banjo. They are not copper crush washers.
