fuel leak

SO I just picked up my first diesel, a 97 F-250 with a 7.3. I love the truck but it has a fuel leak. I thaught it was just the fuel water seperator so I replaced the valve, but it is still leaking. The thing that is frustrating me is the valley is filling with fuel, but I cant see where it is leaking from. Any ideas?

Pull the bowl, there are several short pieces of fuel line that have probably cracked. IIRC they are 5/16 and 3/8 ID.
