Need help with fuel leak on my 7.3L!!!

I'm completely new to diesels, and I could use some input with a fuel leak I have on my 2002 7.3L. It is dripping fuel out of a metal hose going into my filter housing in the engine. The line is the one underneath the yellow, manual water separator drain valve. It looks like it is going into a black plastic housing on the backside (towards cab) of the filter housing unit. Does anybody know what line this is? Does it have an O-ring inside that might be the cause of the leak?

I haven't really had any time to mess with it as I just purchased the vehicle, and I haven't ordered my Helms manual yet. So I'm just trying to get some feedback of what I'm dealing with before I tackle this job on my days off. Thanks for any help.......

Is that what it is, a drain hose (black plastic piece underneath the yellow manual lever)? If so, do they sell them at your local auto parts stores (Checker, etc) or do I have to go to a dealer for it?

That's the drain tube for the water/fuel separator.
Guzzler has a rebuild kit for it, if you don't mind DIY.

I would link it but I would mess that up
