Applies to the Clipper with the Cummins 8.3, but may apply to others.
On Wed. morning we had a small problem in Wawa, Ontario.
We had come across HWY 101 from Timmons on Tues, and arrived late in WAWA.

A bit of construction in the Chapleau area, and lots of mud and paving operation.
The Clipper and the trailer were dirty, but because of darkness, I did not notice a problem and hit the sack.
On startup Thursday, the Cummins required a few cranking tries before start. On the walk around, I then noticed a bad fuel leak at the engine. Shut down, and on investigation, the return line off the injectors feed had split.
Wawa is not the greatest place for this to happen!
Put on the coveralls and got dirty. Was able to reroute and shorten the line and, after fueling, were on the road again about 2.5 hours later than planned.
Just another reminder to always carry your tools.
