O-Ring Question

My fuel bowl started pouring out fuel around the drain valve and so I am going to be ordering the DieselORings.com rebuild kit. My question is which material should I order? There are three different types and I do not want to have to replace these again in a year. Thanks in advance for any info.

If I understand his site correctly you need to see what color your drain valve orings are. all the rest are the same.
You will need to order the regulator kit 7-028 as that is not included unless you put on the fuel cross over kit or do not want to replace the spring and poppet valve.

So I have to take it all apart before I can replace them? The truck is my daily driver so I cannot have it inoperable for 3 days haha.

I ordered the fluro-silicone o-rings as they were rated the best and really...it's only a few $$$ difference between them and the basic o-rings. They were pretty easy to install and work great. Just follow the instructions and you shouldn't have any problems.

The valve itself is bolted on to the back of the float bowl. It took me about an hour to do the job from start to finish.

Alright I will probably just go that route then. I plan on taking the bowl out of the truck and rebuilding it on the bench so that it is easier to get to everything. Thanks for the advice!

If you are going to change all the seals in the fuel bowl, that's fine, but totally unnecessary just to fix the drain valve.

Sorry, guess I should have been more specific. The 2 of the 4 screws that retain the drain valve to the bowl are leaking. The valve itself seems to be alright.

I would suspect that the o-rings are leaking and appear to be coming out of the screw holes, unless the fuel bowl is cracked or somesuch.
