you can buy a new valve at ford for 50$, or orings for about 30. go with the new valve..
there are 4 torx screws (t20?) holding the valve on.
first, slide the drain tube off, then take the screws out and the valve falls right off.

its an easy job, just kinda hard to access. it took me about an hour, and is an easy job to do.

THANKS!!
I am having this same problem (well 99% sure) and my local 'stealer' wants $70 for the whole assy and have to order it! (but supposedly sold 4 this month since it got cold?)
I'm gonna try the $11 for the orings!

Well as is my luck, I tried to come home from work a little early and get this 'quick' fix done before dark and it getting colder, and my valve looks different than what's here. I have a '95 (prod date 1/95) and it appears there are only two phillips screws holding the valve on and the drain tube is held on with a clamp??

Does anyone know if it still takes the same orings as later ones??

I also started it back up to see if I could see the leak, and it looked more like the base of the lift pump was leaking?? I couldn't see if there was a 'weep' hole in the lift pump, but there is def. more fuel on the rear of the manifold than the front, however the front is damp and fuel is running off the back of the manifold.

Anyone got any ideas before I resort to a shop?? (and it won't be the stealer)

Thanks
