I had this same leak a couple weeks ago and the water drain valve on the back of the separator needs new orings or just replace the whole valve like i did. And its a real PITA to get to but that should fix it!!

Don't mean to highjack the post, but I just got the same leak and cannot get the part for another day. Is it dangerous to drive around with diesel on the top of the block (dripping down on the back as well) or is it not combustible enough to sweat it? My understanding is that diesel is not as combustible as regular fuel.

It tows my race car like its not even there

I always use this fuel leak as a good chance to remove the fuel filter housing and replace all O-rings as well as all the fuel line sleeves and just knock it all out at once.
