Leaking right underneath the fly wheel, Very slow leak. Nothing major. Wonderin if any of you have had the same issue, if so what was it.

First, look in the engine valley for fuel puddling. There is a drain path from the valley down the passenger rear of the engine (and onto the inspection cover). Of course there are lots of things to leak in the valley:

Fuel pump out the weep hole on the base
Fuel pump banjo bolt
Fuel bowl (it can rot out at the bottom)
Fuel bowl lid
Fuel bowl-to-pump hoses
Fuel Pressure Regulator-to-bowl joint
Fuel Restriction Sensor (very common leaker, you can use a 1/8 NPT plug instead)
Water-in-Fuel sensor (not common)
Fuel heater feedthrough (not common)

If there is nothing in the valley, look at the fitting on the rear of the heads as there are seals there that can go bad. Cheers!

There are also a few fuel lines that are very prone to leaking and dry rotting out
