6.5 Fuel leak

I have a 96 K2500 with the 6.5TD. I have a fuel leak somewhere inside the valley. I want to remove the upper and lower intake manifold to see whats leaking. Are there any special things I need to know about it? Are the bolts torque to yield? Anything other than a gasket kit?

i have the exact same problem happening all i know is its dripping somewhere around the bottom of the fuel filter thing and my cap is sealed and it leaks around the tranny onto the ground so any input on this would be greatly appreciated. and as far as i know for your question is there probably is a torque spec for the intake manifold and gasket kit please let me know what you find if you end up tackling the job and let me know how it goes. thanks. also im not sure if you have to remove the piece for the thermostats that goes from one side of the heads to the other so you might need those gaskets too.

Mine is leaking the exact same way. I figure it would be easiest to remove the intake and look at all the fuel lines.

that was my thought too but i don't like that job too much i see two bolts beside the fuel filter and i was thinking of taking those off to see if i can get a better look by pulling the canister thing right out all i know is there are two rubber fuel lines that look like they run right under the intake.

All of my injection lines run under the intake. I'm going to assume one of those are leaking. If there cheap enough I may just replace them all while I am in there.

all i know is some of those injecter lines are a pain in the @$$ to get at and i could imagine they would come in a kit because they are all steel and bent to fit. i couldn't see one of those leaking but with high milage its possible i guess maybe thats why my truck sounds like its missing on one cylinder when i first start it in the morning and gives off a huge cloud of smoke until it kicks in. just replaced all GP so thats not my problem anymore.

I've actually replaced the whole housing because I thought it was cracked.
