i had a leak a few weaks back, it was dripping out of the fuel drain tube, the orings on the fuel drain releif valve were shot. i replaced the valve (about 50$) and fixed the prob. you can change out just the orings, but make sure you get ones that can handle fuel.
dont know if thats your prob. or not.

o rings

You can get just the orings from black cloud diesel performance for about 10 bucks. It cured my leak problem.

I just odrered a bag of the correct o-rings for this application.The o-rings I ordered are made of Viton which has excellent chemical and oil resistance. Temperature range is -15 to +400 F. Durometer hardness is A75. Meets SAE J200.Other guys have used different kinds of rubber but I understand Viton is suppose to be the best for this application. O-ring size 1/2"OD X 1/4"ID X 1/8" thick.The drian valve at the dealer is about $38(includes o-rings), the o-ring kit (4 o-rings) is about $32. When I ordered the o-rings I have, they came in a large quantity.


I have more than I need if you would like to buy a couple of them P.M. me. ($5.00 a pair)
