there is a lever on the fuel bowl. Open it. The tube comes down off the front passanger side corner of the block. DO NOT open it with the engine running. Key off, open her up, and drain her out!!!

It shouldn't drain into the valley. The valve should be connected to a metal tube by a short rubber hose. The tube then runs down the passenger side front of the engine. See the pics in the link at the end of my sig.
