fuel drain releif valve / fuel leak

thanks a million marc! got the fuel drain releif valve swaped out (was leaking fuel due to bad orings) and all looks good. you saved me alot of head scratchin by pointing me in the right direction.
it took me about an hour to change it, im sure it could be done a little faster, but the motor was still hot so it was a little challenging. those screws are a pain in the butt to get out and then back in. part of the problem is that i am partialy mechanicly challenged, and since its located at the top rear of the engine, i had to kneel in front of the battery to get access to it.

do you think draining the fuel on a reg. basis would prolong the life of the valve? i usually drain it when i change the fuel filter, just to make sure there isnt a bunch of junk in the bottom of the bowl.
