Generator Fuel Leak

I have a generator that is leaking gasoline. I have attached a picture. Can anyone identify why it's leaking or how to fix it? In the picture you will see a brass piece that the fuel line connects to right at the carburetor. I tried to tighten the piece with no luck. I need to find out what that piece is and where would I be able to get one? Thank You
Generator Info:
Onan Genset 5500 Watts
Model # 5.5 HGJAB-1038A
Serial # L000187655

The standard in-line fuel filter is down below the generator and I changed that. I'm not sure, but this could be a second fuel filter? I have no clue. Thanks.

They sometimes have two, I believe they are identical.

Some models come with two fuel filters. My gen has two filters. Onan changed the design on my gen and that filter is now replaced with an adapter and only uses the fuel filter that is underneath.

That is a possibility. I'll have to see if the extra filter I bought will work. Thanks.
If anyone else has ideas, I'm open to everything.

I had the same problem. It is a known problem and an easy fix. Take the filter to a parts store and get a fitting that will fit into the carb and that you can attach the fuel line to. You will also need a longer fuel line from the other filter to the carb.

I have an extra filter. I did not know it was a filter. I can install the new one and solve it. I had to cut the gas line to remove it due to it being so tight. I'm going to replace it with new, just had no idea it would have 2 filters.

I had the same problem. I replaced the leaking fuel filter with Onan part A029S253 fuel line adapter. Bought mine on Amazon.

Onan discontinued use of the second filter (redundant) and advse use of the adapter refered to in the previous post.
New replacement for the lower filter is too large to be used in the upper position.

I found the fitting listed on Amazon. It's shows like $20 plus $13 for shipping. It didn't have a picture so I take for granted it's the correct one. Anyone have the Amazon link to buy the fitting I need? Thank you.

Ordered one yesterday from anyrvparts.com
$16.49 plus $6.xx shipping.
Must be something going around.
Nice thing is the adapter is long enough to use the existing hose.

I suggest using a fuel resistant pipe dope when you replace the filter. Don't use Teflon tape because if a strand were to get into the line it would not be good.
