fuel leak from valley

ok i have a fuel leak in the valley and i can not find where it is coming from. i have replaced the fuel bowl about a year ago drain valve orings are good. i replaced all the lines from the bowl to the pump and replaced the banjo bolt seals about a week ago. the only other thing i can think of is the brass nipple on the front of the lift pump. is this a serviceable part it looks like i could take a spanner wrench and unscrew it. or is this pressed on

Clean everything up as good as you can and check for a leak at the weep hole near the base of the pump (mirror and flashlight works good). Cheers!

I could actually see mine leaking with the cover off, from looking from right over the glow plug relay down at the base of pump fuel spraying from the hole. Bright flashlight helped a lot.

I just notice mine leaking fuel the other day. Was dripping down off the starter. Checked the valley and its definitely coming from somewhere around the fuel pump. I'm a Newbie when it comes to diesels, is there a complete kit I can buy that replaces the lines to and from, all o-rings, seals etc? I would like to take care of all the "problematic" potential leak points at the same time. Thanks for any and all info, and sorry for posting on your thread just didn't want to start a new one that's the same.
