Question Beckett AFG Oil Burner -OIL LEAK-

I have a six year old beckett oil burner AFG furnace that was used one winter. It had sat for the last five years unused with the oil valves shut off. I started it this year and the burner worked fine except there is a severe oil leak from the coupling at the fuel unit side? It starts leaking as soon as the valve is opened and the furnace is off.
Any suggestions for repair or replacement parts?

If it starts leaking as soon as the oil is turned on, you have a bad shaft seal. The best solution is a new pump.
This is probably the pump which is on the burner:
