Fuel leak

I have a 97 PSD just changed fuel filter and now have a small leak. Leak only occurs when I turn the engine off. Any ideas?

usually leaks occur while everything is under pressure. As in when the truck is running not when the truck is shut off.

I don't know if the older ones are the same or not, but I had a leak that only showed up when the truck sat for a few hours (2000 F-350). Mine was the o-rings on the filter bowl drain.

I had the same problem but it was the mechanical feed pump behind the fuel bowl.

Take a good look down into the valley of the motor and see if you can tell where it comes from, could be filter o-rings, the filter lid seal, fuel pump or you might not have got the water drain valve closed all the way.

Thanks for the response - I haven't had time to look to see where it is leaking from but I will take a look this weekend.
