fuel leak

yet again, another problem, i noticed now that fuel is dripping off the tin part that covered the fly wheel under the motor, recently changed the fuel filter on top of the motor, didnt notice this leak before, triple checked the filter cap and such, pretty sure thats not the problem

If it is the 94-97 PSD, I'd say the fuel pump is starting to leak. It's says 1989 in your sig but says 7.3 PSD so a little confused.

97 PSD into a 89 F350 conversion

Ahh, ok. I'd be looking at the pump in the valley.

The fuel bowl, lines, and fuel pump are all possible suspects for a fuel leak. Take a look at the valley under the fuel bowl while its running and you should be able to see where the leak is coming from.

If you have a leaking fuel pump you might as well rebuild the fuel bowl with new orings while you have it out.
