fuel leak

i got an 03 7.3 and was coming back from hunting this morning and niticed that there was fuel leaking after looking around the truck for a few minutes while running i found that fuel was collecting in the valley of the block. is there an extra pump that is located on the top of the motor that could be leaking or do i need to trace the fuel line?

if so where would be the best place to start?

fuel bowl rebuild

you'll need this...

Riffraff Diesel: "Mechanics Parts Cabinet" Combo kit

Also, look at the pass side fuel line going to the head. It runs through a "P" clamp, overtime the line rubs against it, causing a crack/leak...
