Fuel Leak

Thank you all for look at this. I have a 2000 350. I just noticed a fuel leak. I checked the fuel bowl relief valve and there is no fuel stagnate fuel below it, where i have been told to check. The fuel is leaking and comming out around the oil pan and dropping onto the center of the front axel. If you are looking at the truck from the front it would be from the right side where most is comming from. Please i need some help if someone can tell me what i need to do to try and find this leak. I spent about 2 hours and could not find anything. I am in the military and the rates to take to a garage are horriable around here. Just some starter info would be awesome. Thanks in advance.

get yourself the cabinet kit from RIFFRAFFdiesel. Rebuild your fuel bowl, and then, pay close attention to the passenger side fuel line, from bowl to back f p/s head. Mid point, the hardline runs through a clamp. Its there, over time, that the clamp, from vibration, wears a hole in it, causing the leak. Replace the hardline, and install a piece of fuel hose over the line, and re-clamp.
