Fuel Leak help

I have fuel leaking from the bottom of the plate in the picture. I can fix it myself, but I have an ESP that should cover it if it's more involved...
Is there an o-ring that seals it or what? I couldn't find a good drawing, or part number. What's behind there?

No help? I thought someone might have an idea of what I'd be up against before I start tearing into it...
I did a pretty thorough search and found nothing on fuel leaking from that area..

Fuel pressure regulator. Has an O-ring that flattens out over time and leaks. I would have entire regulator replaced since updated regulator bumps fuel pressure up supplying more fuel to injectors.

Thanks a million guys!
I pulled it tonight and found the o-ring flattened. I assume it's all in the kit?

The kit in the part number I posted above, consists of everything in the photo, along with the updated spring and four new TX-27 bolts.

Got the leak fixed, and the updated spring really helped the truck feel more snappy. It feels much better!
