Angry fuel leak

Guys I noticed this morning that while sitting in traffic I smelled fuel 20 minutes and a 1/4 tank later I'm back at the campground and the valley is full of fuel. The filter housing seems dry and I noticed some spray on the down tube for the turbo. Any ideas where to start looking once it cools down.

I think there are some o rings on the fuel bowl that can leak. Check out this section in the 7.3 tech files.

thats what looks like is happening. I have fuel spraying from the left side below the turbo. Any idea how easy it is to fix and are the parts Ford only?

It is probably a ford only part. You might be able to get one at an IH dealer if you can get the right part number and cross reference it for them. It would be for the T444E at INTL.

since it's 4 July weekend the dealers are closed here in San Antonio tell Tuesday. So it's fun time at the campground until they open.

Mine Leaked from the same fuel line. I got it fixed at IH I can probably find my repair bill and see if it has apart number on it. I believe that the turbo needs to come out to get to it.
