Question Leaking fuel!!

Well i let my truck warm up this morning and before i got in it to leave i saw a puddle under it. So i crawl under it and its diesel, (SON OF B!&$#), i found where its coming from, its a hard line that wraps around the front of the motor, it looks like a over flow tube,any ideas? Its the dark hard line in the pics.

It's not an overflow, it's the fuel drain pipe to dump water from the fuel bowl

It's not a bad fix, you need the O-Ring Kit and you dissemble that "yellow" handled valve behind the fuel bowl at the top of the motor....
