Diesel leak! Fuel bowl?

So I just swapped out my compressor wheel for a Wicked Wheel 2 and have noticed some spots on my driveway, I first thought the pedestal seals didn't line up right, But after further inspection it looks like it's diesel running through the valley and down the back of the block. Is the o-kit going to fix this? it looks like it's coming off this white plug.

yup, get the cabinet kit. It'll have all the orings needed for fuelbowl, oil plugs, pedestal...etc.

Well, I replaced the orings on the fuel bowl heater. Looked like it fixed the leak for 2 days, but smelled diesel again today and looks like its leaking again

Is it possible that the heater element has heat cycled that its cracked? It doesn't look like the leak is coming from anywhere else

Short follow up; Spoke to a tech who has worked on 7.3's forever, said he never saw a leak from the AIF/Heater plug before. Anyways, guess this is a first for him, I replaced the heater element in the bowl and the sensor ($160 @ dealer, $120 off ebay) and seems to have fixed the leak. The oem sensor was pretty burnt. Planning to leave the harness unplugged unless it drops below zero here this winter.

I just wanted to say thanks for the follow-up. So many people never come back to say what actually fixed their problem. Follow-up comments sure help others when we are searching for solutions. Not sure what's wrong with dad's truck yet but thanks for the info as I dig into this for him. Thanks again!
