Default Gas Leak from carb?

Hey folks,
Looking for some help. I have a gas leak coming from somewhere in bottom of the carburetor. I have just finished replacing the fuel line from the petcock valve to the carb, but that didn't do it.

It's a '91 Sportster 883. See the attached pick. The drip rate is about one drip per thirty seconds or so. Rev'ing the engine increases it, but if I don't close the petcock valve when I park, it continues.

It seems to be coming from where the plastic thing that the fuel line connects to attaches to the carb, but I'm not sure.

Otherwise it runs great. Any ideas? Thanks!
