New to Diesel need info

Hello All:

I am new to repair of diesels. I have a 2003 F250 Super duty my dad gave me, it has the 7.3L powerstroke in it; and I want to learn the components. I have a chiltons manual, but honestly it does not really give in depth component identification. What is a good manual or where can I go online to find component identification for the engine components? For example I also thought I had a leak from the fuel/water seperator bowl and I purchased the o-ring kit, well I stil have a leak but now I think it is coming from a component where the two mounting bolts that hold the water/seperator on go thru; I believe it is that component that is leaking at the back end and I don't know what it is called. ANy help would be greatly appreciated. If I am not posting correctly or in the right area let me know.

this is kinda the correct area, from what I can tell you are speaking of the HPOP, and this site is the best place to find ANY thing you want to know.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...
