Hi all!

We have a cummins diesel b6.9 which has a fuel leak. I have attached a photo with an arrow pointing at the source of the fuel leak. It is coming out of the mushroom shaped piece at the back, near the fuel pump and throttle. Any idea what purpose this piece has? Has anyone had this, or a similar issue before?
