Can a fuel bowl leak ruin a clutch?

My buddies 7.3 clutch went after it started developing a fuel bowl leak. Slave cyl is fine clutch just totally slips. Ive never heard of fuel getting into the bell housing after it drains down in the back of the valley of the motor

yo can glaze a clutch with diesel fuel, so it's possible, but i wouldn't think it's very likely

I've seen it happen several times. It takes a fair amount of fuel but its not outside of the realm of possibilities. As the fuel pools up in the valley all it takes is parking or driving up hill for all of that to drain out the back. A coating of diesel on the flywheel and soaked into the clutch material and you will have a hard time getting it to hold at all.
