Fuel leak?

I took out my fuel bowl over the weekend to try and stop a leak. While in there i cleaned my FPR screen. I think truck runs smoother now. While the fuel bowl was out i put in some new o rings to see if that would stop the leak. I also replaced some of the fuel lines. It is still leaking at the same slow and steady rate any ideas on what it might be.

Thank you. Would you explain a little more? Where is it located at on the pump and how to stop it?

It's in the center of the pump, on the bottom. If you dry the area around the pump, then fire it up, you will most likely see a trickle of fuel out from around the base. Mine was bad, so I changed it. The new one (NAPA Airtex), made it 10 months then gave up the ghost. Got a new one for free under warranty.

If you have to change out your fuel pump I strongly suggest you go with electric fuel.
