Fuel leak from bottom of engine

Hey guys i got a 1997 250 7.3 psd thats leaking fuel from the bottom of the engine. It drips down from the cover of the flywheel. It leaves about a 5 inch puddle when i park it. Somtimes it will leak bad, sometimes it will barley drip. I was wondering what this might be, whether its a big problem or not, or if its somthing i shouldnt worry about. I currently have a ts chip and 6637 intake on it. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated, thanks!

Check around your fuel pump in the valley, look over the hoses for cracks. Also look over your fuel bowl see if it's coming from around there. There are lots of common spots in these areas that leak, then drain down the back of the motor.

+ check at the back of the heads where the steel fuel line meets the fitting. Those Vibra-Lok fittings can dry out over time and leak.
