New here with a common fuel leak!

New here! New to me 1995 PSD! Excited about having a diesel. Not so excited to get all the worn out stuff fixed on this thing. I have about $1200 to fix worn out steering components, a bad throw out bearing with sqeeky clutch, and fuel leak.
I have found the fuel leak and was wondering if anyone has had similar leaking characteristics. It appears that it only leaks when running. I cranked her up (runs absolutely great by the way) and started carefully looking for the leak.
I found the nearly hidden short blue hose about 1" long going from fuel pump to fuel bowl dripping right at the pipe clamped connection to the fuel pump. I plan to go home after work and try to get to the clamp and tighten it down more and see if that stops the leak. Just wondering if it could really be anything more than just a leak hose. It seems to drip about every three seconds. I don't see any other fuel spraying on engine like some folks seem to have. Great to be here!

Just remove the bowl and replace all 3 of those lines behind there, they are very prone to leaks and what not over age

They always give people problems which is why most opt for an e-fuel conversion/bowl delete.
