Arrow Diesel fuel leak.......can't tell from where...

I changed the fuel filter Saturday and am now noticing a drip in the back passenger side of the motor on the floor in the shop. Was not dripping before. I have checked the filter it was loose and was leaking slightly and I tightened it up an now its bone dry. Could this be the fuel that was leaking before but I would think it would have dried out by now. Anyone else had this happen to them? :dunno Im going to put it on the lift and see if I can see any thing ........nice to have a large shop with a lift . LMK what u guys think.

There are weep holes on top of the engine valley that let diesel drain off the top of the engine. so any leak will always show around the engine where it meets the transmission bellhousing. Its very common to get these leaks a search should net you all the details to fix it. most of the issues are seals and o rings on the fuel bowl.. the older PS with mechanical fuel pump would also leak from the rubber fuel lines that connect to fuel bowl/filter
