fuel on the driveway

Why on my '02 7.3 would there be little amounts of fuel dripping out of the torque converter cover. Also, this Pig's a shaking when I start braking. Can you turn the rotors on these trucks. I was told several years ago when I drove a company super duty that the front rotors are bic disposables. Is that true? They look good, no grooves.

You got fuel in the valley? If so, that's usually where it ends up looking like its coming from. There is a "drain hole" on the pass side of the valley, when fuel/oil leaks into the valley, it drains out the back of the valley and down the engine, looking somewhat like a rear main leak.

So is there something that commonly leaks in there? Fuel filter maybe?

Mine was leaking too I changed the orings between the fuel bowl and drain valve that or the oring on top of the filter would be two good places to start
