Fuel bowl leak

I've got a leak underneath the fuel bowl. I replaced the o-rings on the drain valve thinking that might be my problem. All the actual fuel lines are dry so what other spots are common for the fuel bowl to leak. I'm losing a lot of fuel, it makes a 12" spot on the ground every time I stop and I don't think I have to worry about anything rusting underneath my truck. Thanks

Re: Fuel bowl leak

Did you replace all 3 orings on the drain valve? Mine has leaked at the upper plug also, you have 2 plugs that have orings and as said you have the fuel lines. Wipe it off good and start it up and watch you may see it since its that bad.

Re: Fuel bowl leak

Check for anything out of place inside the bowl. Also check for visible leaks with the truck running.

Re: Fuel bowl leak

I can't see any place that it is coming from but if i reach underneath the bowl my finger comes back wet. How about the heating element is there a place that the element wires come through? If the bowl is cracked where can I find a replacement?
