fuel leak??

Hey guys. I'm a long time reader, first time poster. I am leaking diesel fuel. it looks to be coming out of a tube on the front pass. side just under the a/c compressor. I have done a fair amount of work to the front end and it is something that I may have done or forgot to do. It seems like it could be a fuel return line?? It drips pretty steady when runing. Any help would be great.

P.S. I have an early 7.3L...5/98 production date

Turns out that was exactly what it was! It very easy....once I found the correct o rings. If you go an auto parts store they will more then likely will not have the correct o rings; #202 means little to nothing to them. I found my o rings at a hydraulic pump shop. They were very helpfull and gave me the o rings for free. Thanks for all the help.
