7.3 Fuel Bowl Drain Valve Leaking

So the yellow drain valve started a slow drip immediately after I replaced the HPOP. Of course I pulled the fuel bowl to replace the HPOP, but didn't unscrew the valve or anything (maybe the lever hadn't been turned in a while). Anyhow, picked up new yellow valve (just in case) and orings. Do you guys put any sealer on this thing where it mates to the bowl, or just rely on the orings?

Thanks!

Just the Orings...don't really need to replace the valve in most cases, just rings.

No Sealant just lubricate it with Clean oil or diesel fuel, dont put it back together dry.
