Fuel leak

On the 7.3's it is common for the metal fuel line for the pass side head to wear a hole under the glow plug relay bracket and back by the turbo pedistal.

When you did the O-rings on the separator, did you take the top off the filter bowl and remove the filter at all? There're two rings on that filter assembly that can get misplaced and leak like a banshee.
