fuel leaks near filter

hey whats up yall??i have an 88 e350 ambulance with a 7.3 idi in it.it is leaving a puddle under the fuel filter.i have heard they are known to bleed off overnight but mine appears to be pretty bad off.is it for sure the common leak from the fuel heater orings??this is what ive heard but cant narrow it down and am wondering if it could be the filter housing itself??ive heard to take it apart and that if u put injector orings in them it will fix them but my book does not mention a fuel heater.was hoping someone had some pics and step by step or any advice would be welcomed!!I NEED TO GET BACK TO THE FLEAMARKETS!!LOL THANKS FOR ANY HELP ...HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND
