My truck has started a new habbit of leaking

So last Friday on my way home from school for the weekend my fuel bowl heater shorted out. I unplugged it and replaced fuse 30 and all was good. Haven't figured out the best way to fix that or what to replace on it, if its the heater itself or the harness causing the shorting. any one know?

Next, This morning I went out side to start my truck and go to class (i'm in northern Maine and its cold as **** here. cycled the plugs twice. started it, stalled once, cycled the plugs again and it started fine. let it idle for a few minutes then went to class. on my way to class i stopped to get a coffee, walked out of the store and noticed my truck was leaking a fluid pretty fast from somewhere. I quickly hopped in it and drove to the lot i was parking in for class. look at it and investigate a little more to find that the leak is coming from the fuel bowl drain. Now i may have bumped the valve when i was unplugging it, but I drove about 300miles total this weekend and it had not leaked at all until this morning.

Also, I have coolant leak (drip) coming off the flange connecting the lower radiator hose to the water pump. (i think that's where the thermostat is?) anyone know the part number or where i can buy an O ring for it so i can stop losing coolant when my engine is cold?

sorry this is so long. all of these problems have started within the passed week and it really sucks.
thanks
Will

Yea I've got a leak there. I'd just go to an International parts place. They should have it.

Where is the thermostat down there? I thought it was up near the top?

Also, the drain O rings might've been the problem. They tend to leak sometimes.

Mine is leaking in the same spot. Doesn't do it all the time, just when it wants too.

Yea. Mostly when it's warmer outside. It SEEPS mostly. I figured I'd just wait until I do my radiator flush and fix that gasket then too . . . once it gets warm
