I just fixed the same problem on mine. It was leaking right below the fuel filter and I had fuel sitting in the valley of the motor. Watch this video, it is pretty common on 7.3s.

If you are looking to rebuild it I have the whole dieseloring.com kit for rebuilding your fuel bowl which should fix all your leaks. I bought it but ended up deleting my fuel bowl, will come with everything needed to fix your fuel bowl leaks as long as it isn't cracked also wil included the fuel pressure regulator housing with 3 different springs to adjust your fuel pressure to get a little more power if you want $60 shipped and it's all yours!

You can get a new valve from ford if it is leaking, they are easy to replace.
