Fuel Leak

I've got a small fuel leak which looks to be dripping from the rear of the motor, closer to to passenger side. I have changed the fuel filter, and also determined that the drain valve o-rings are not the culprits. Any thoughts on something else that may commonly leak back there?? Thanks.

I had the same thing happen on my truck. What I finally found was that one of the fuel lines that comes out of the fuel filter housing on the passenger side and goes back in to the back of the passenger side head was leaking. This was caused by the clamp that is right next to where the air dumps into that head had rubbed a hole in the line. All I had to do was purchase a new line from Ford and it was good as new. Hope this helps you.
