Leaking sensor

I have a 97 F350 Powerstroke. There is a sensor on the left side (right in the pic) of the fuel filter housing. It is leaking from the middle of this sensor. What is this sensor and will replacing it fix the leak or is it an O-ring or something?

Navistar Fuel Bowl Filter Restriction Sensor

Fuel Restriction Sensor, they are known leakers. The site listed above has the part at a good price. Another quick and very cheap fix to get you back on the road is a 1/8" NPT plug, available at any hardware store for about a buck.
