3 Things.

Your truck is common for fuel leaks after age in 3 places. #1 and most will agree with me is the fuel bowl drain valve. #2 is under the Glow Plug relay bracket, the line can wear a hole in itself on the bracket. #3 is back by the turbo on the same fuel line as under the Glow Plug Relay. On the corner of the turbo pedistal is a clamp that holds the fuel line. It is supposed to protect it but it can eventually wear a hole in it.

no.....yours is an OBS truck (old body style)....it has a fuel pump in the valley that the superduties dont have...that will be the most probable cause for your leak...

So just a leaking fuel line? Is it under the turbo? Where at in the valley?

fuel injectors are under and sealed by the valve covers more than likely you have a filter housing o ring problem or a bleed port that is not sealing,also look in the valley being under the intake to seeif there is fuel in that area i have seen fuel line brass crush washers leak also,there are also plugs on the head that are used to bleed fuel when replacing injectors to relieve fuel and oil so it wont go into cylinders when replacing injectors, so it has to be an external leak,not injectors
