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.......

yes just get you a new drain valve. they are like 20 bucks for the kit to change it. that will stop the leak. it is very common on the 7.3s

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
