Fuel leak

Hey guy's My 1996 Ford F-250 7.3 has a fuel leak. It is dripping from the trans inspection cover? Any one have any ideas whats going on? Top of motor appears to be dry. Any help or suggestion would be great.
Thanks Martin

The valley drain is right between the starter and the tranny inspection cover. The valley is dry? or not puddled? Thats the only way fuel could get down on the bottom of the tranny. The fuel lines run the frame till the front then, up into the valley from the front by the power steering pump. Have to do some poking around, there is the fuel pump that could be weeping, the filter housing, and the 4 fuel lines that go to the corner of the heads.

Thanks for your input. Is there a common problem with this. Either one more possible then the other? My truck is pretty clean and has 125,000 on it? Once again thanks for a starting point.
