Fuel Leak

I am trying to track down a fuel leak that really has me stumped

The engine valley is DRY, the fuel is leaking from the driver rear of the engine and its a good constant drip , It starts dripping as soon as the truck is started. I know there is a crossover line somewhere but I cant locate it. I didn't feel any leaks on the rear of the valve cover . I looks like it is dripping down the exhaust manifold. Does anyone have any ideas?? Thanks

Maybe is from the line that goes to the banjo bolt in the union with the head, there are a special kind of o-ring (like a little part of a rubber hose). The crossover line is optional, its not a stock item.

Good luck.

Re: Fuel Leak

Anyone got a pic or a parts breakdown of the back of the head that shows the fuel system?
I have the same leak and can't see where it is coming from. Would like to have an idea before I get pissed and yard the turbo out lol!

Re: Fuel Leak

Searched and found a million posts on fuel problems-no parts breakdowns or pics though.
