Go to photobucket and make an account -- upload the pictures and then copy and paste the "IMG" link in your post.

You can also use part diagrams from realoem to describe your situation better

The transfer tube that runs under the driveshaft uses compression couplings. It can be removed and reinstalled with two wrenches. If it is leaking on the hose, I would buy a new one for $50 (last time I checked). If it is leaking on the tank, then the solution will be more complicated.

Where the JB weld was should tell you where it was leaking. If he gooped it around the tank nipples, then you need a new fuel tank. If it's on the pipe itself, then get a new pipe. $50 is obscene, take the pipe to a hydraulics shop, they'll probably make you one for 20 bucks. Or get a new tank on ebay (which is probably a good idea regardless).
