anybody know????????????

I started my truck this morning and the weather is a bit colder out here in AZ than so cal about 30 degs last night. When I was warming it up this morning I noticed a leak thought it was oil but no, and it was dripping while it was running when i checked it, it was diesel (clean,clear & smelled like oil). Anyway I started looking and theres a tube above my lower alternator(01 7.3 w/two alternators) the drip was coming from there anybody know what this tube is or why it would leak? Its never done this before..thanks...

It is coming from the fuel drain valve on the filter houing, either go to ford and buy a new one, or somebody sells just the o-rings. Do a google search on fuel drain valve orings.

There are 2- orings, behind the drain valve. Remove the 4 torx screws and the orings. If you have a hydraulic shopclose by take the o-rings there and get some 90 durometer orings to replace them or do a search somewhere it says what size they are. I'll look to and post if I find it.
