I have an 87 GT V6 - 5 speed that has been sitting for about a year or so. When I started it up and there was a faint smell of fuel but no leak noticed. A week later when I went to start the car again it would not start this time and the fuel smell was overwelming. I thought it might of been leaking from the tube that connects to the inlet side of the fuel filter because it was rusty and had a twist to it. I replaced the line and a new fuel filter and the leak is still there. I left the key in the "on" position and climbed back under the car and the leak seems to be coming from the top of the tank. What is up there that could start leaking all by itself ? I am thinking it might be a line from the fuel pump but i am not sure. Don't laugh but has anyone ever replaced a fuel pump by cutting a hole in the floor to get at it? The reason I am asking is because I have an x-frame under the body to strenghten the chassis because it is a convertable and would hate to have to cut the x-frame out. Sorry about going on and on but wanted to be spacific. If I do need to replace the fuel pump, does anyone have one that is in good shape? Thanks for all of your help!

Possibly a ruber hose,it may not be on far enough or a hose clamp thats not tight enough.Most likely the ruber fuel line that connect from the fuel tank to the fuel filter line.Try tightening the hose clamp.
