Fuel leak

Just bought this truck and has a issue. Whenever I drive it (normal temps) then park it a puddle form underneath the truck. The fuel is coming from the bell housing, right behind the motor. What can this be. Truck runs/drives fine there is just a leak when I park it. To be real technical, there is a metal dust shield that mounts to the bell housing. The fuel drips out of this area.

any suggestions guys?

Either the fuel filter housing has an o-ring leaking or the fuel pump is leaking.

Fuel Filter housing is leaking. Or you have a loose or broken fuel line. I will look at the fuel filter housing. More specifically the fuel water drain. It has an o-ring that is known to go bad.

No but you said fuel pump. The fuel is coming down from the bell housing. If you would have read the op fully you would have seen that.

I put money on the fuel filter housing leaking which is common. As I know you know this also.

I said pump because my 95 did that. I also said filter housing.

Towards the front of the engine in the valley. Right underneath the black cover if yours is still there.
