Fuel leak on front of motor

I bought a 2005 350 a couple months back and then i noticed it was a pretty good fuel leak from the from driver side of the motor. the banjos into the heads are dry as are the fuel lines from the tank. im pretty sure its the secondary fuel filter leaking but im not positive. i have 2 questions. is there anything else that could potentially be leaking? does the blue spring kit replace all of the orings on the secondary fuel filter? basically i want to rebuild the whole thing but im not sure if those kits come with everything you need. does it replace whatever orings the hardlines to the filter would use? thanks

Blue spring upgrade does come with all the o rings for the regulator housing... I dont recall the kit having o rings for the lines though. Where is the leak coming from? The top of the housing or the lines? Do you use motorcraft filters? Aftermarket filter cap?

Just looked at it again and I think it's from the key oring thing. It's just wet with no drips or anything but the engine cradle and steering is pretty wet with fuel. It will drop once parked but it's just the residual fuel as in it doesn't just keep leaking. Is it possible that it is only leaking when the housing is pressurized? I've only put 2000 miles and haven't changed the filter and the cap is stock. My thoughts with replacing the line orings was just to replace everything while I was in there

Re: Fuel leak on front of motor

There are fuel line connections there at the corner of the motor, check them well. Had a guy here recently that had his truck burn to the ground when it busted and sprayed fuel on the manifold.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Sorry, Left front corner, where the fuel lines come around and up to the secondary filter housing.

Drivers side where the "hard lines" from your housing connects to the fuel lines going to and from hfcm and tank. There are three fuel lines right there.
