I think i have a fuel leak........

Hey guys, I changed my fuel filter last weekend and I looked in the valley yesterday by the fuel pump and seen a small puddle of fuel, so I just figured it was where I was cleaning the fuel bowl and spilled some, so I took some either and dried it all up. Well I seem to always smell hot diesel from the motor so I looked this morning and another small puddle under the big bolt on the back of the pump. I don't know where its leaking from, I guess I'll dry it back up and start it and watch it.

96 f250 rclb flatbed, 4x4 5spd, Custom CAI, 4 inch exhaust, and soon when I make more money, gauges, ts 6 pos with tunes, baby swamps or rosewoods stage 1s.

No fuel under the bowl??? The big bolt has two brass washers used for sealing the banjo. might be time for a new one. Bolt is tight?
