Default Fuel Pump Leak in '67 289

I'm new to working on engines! I finally figured out that she wouldn't start (when she has been running fine for YEARS) because fuel is hemorrhaging where the line hits the pump.....it is square!, is it loose? How do I tighten it?, do I need a new gasket? (everything is original, car only has 75,000 miles on it, it was originally a Hertz rental.) How does it come apart?

Thanks for your help.

Is fuel leaking from where the fuel lines enter and exit the fuel pump? Or is it leaking out of an area in the pump? There is a small gasket where the pump connects to the engine block and that is just to stop oil from leaking from where the pump arm enters the block.

Clean it off real good and start the car and watch where the fuel comes from. It could be as easy at tightening a hose clamp or a twist of one of the brass fittings that connect the fuel line to the pump. If it's leaking from the actual pump then you'll have to get another pump.

Also, welcome to the forums.
