Generally the leak you describe comes from the drain line on your fuel filter housing, directly on the backside of the canister housing itself. There are two small o-rings in the drain valve that will corrode/dry out over time and leak by. It is very common on the 7.3L motors. Its an easy fix, all you need for tools is a small torques head socket to take out the 4 screws holding the drain valve in place and a pair of replacement o-rings you can get for less than $1. You can verify that this is the source of the leak, just start the truck and shine a flashlight behind your fuel filter and watch for a couple minutes. If the o-rings are shot you should notice a steady drip. Hope this helps, and you can build me a multi-million dollar mansion whenever you want...
