95 7.3 Leaking Fuel

So my van has been leaking diesel for about a month now. It is leaking pretty good now. I am trying to find it but for the life of me can't find it. It is not leaking on top of the manifold anywhere that I can see. When I look up from underneath I can see a lot on the bottom of the bellhousing. There is a plate that it is leaking on the bottom of the bellhousing. It is also formed on the tranny lines and the starter. When I try to look up along side of block it doesn't look wet.

Any idea what could be leaking or any kind of help to determine what is wrong?

Thanks for any help!!

Most fuel leaks come from the bottom of the Fuel Bowl where the rubber lines go from/to the fuel pump or if the pump is worn there is a weep hole in it that will leak fuel. While up there also run your hands from the back of the fuel pump where the banjo bolt mounts and run to each head to see if the leak is at the brass washers on the bolt or where the lines meet the heads.

There is a drain hole at the back of the valley to allow fluid to run off the top of the motor and down the back passenger side of the motor a lot of times this fluid will end up between the bell-housing and motor so you don't see it again until the bottom of the motor/tranny and the wind will blow it everywhere once it is down there.
