fuel leak 1997 7.3

my valley was full of fuel when i got home today dried it up and started my truck, its leaking out the bottom side of the fuel filter housing right at the shut off valve but more inward from the drain hose. would this be the shut off leaking or do they have some kind of seals on the bottom? just trying to get a idea before i tear it apart tomorrow. thanks

Did JB weld work for you? I figured the guy I just bought it from probably did that to sell it. It happened a week after I bought the thing. After it happened I figured that the valley of the engine was too clean to be true! Just another tip to the OP, I tried to save money and ordered a new fuel filter housing from an international dealer instead of Ford. It looked like I would save $200 doing that. But when the one came from international it was the same casting, but had the pipes in different places. I used one from a wrecker.

JB weld huh? Amazing stuff, I've used it on 1200 hp Cat 3512 engines to repair pitting on the deck of the block with succes.
