fuel leak....need o-ring kit info

EARLY 99 f350.
235,000 miles
7.3L Powerstroke

gradually noticed smell of diesel at front of truck after cutting off, its gotten worse over time. the other day i started it before leaving work, and noticed fuel dripping (VERY RAPIDLY) down the back side of the engine. (visualize fuel running out of a 1/4" fuel line hose onto the ground...thats the size of the stream i saw)....

once home and after investigation, the leak had slowed to a minimal yet frequent drip.

after reading other threads im figuring i need to start with a complete o-ring kit and replace them all. i'd like to do this once, hence my emphasis on doing them all....

any of yall able to help me on what kit i need? and where to get it? any other things to check/replace while im in there?

thanks in advance!

Dieseloring.com sells a kit for around 20 bucks that replaces every seal in the bowl. Except the filter of course. The valve that drains the bowl. See if it moves almost freely. If so more than likely those 2 fat orings are bad. 4 phillips head screws removes the valve. Also you can buy these nowadays at common parts stores. Good Luck

thanks!! yea i figure its a simple fix, just had a buddy who had a leak below the turbo (im guessing on the line going into passenger side head)...he had to remove the turbo to install that new o-ring or seal or whatever it was he had leaking.
