Fuel bowl drain o-rings

Had the usual O-rings start to leak on the bowl drain. Ford wanted 44.00 for 2 o rings and 57.00 for the assembly. I went to the International dealer and they robbed two orings from an assembly part # 1823565c1 (orings) . The cost was 3.28 .. the assembly is not the correct assembly for the ford but it has the same orings. Also noticed with the old orings that they have been deformed abit on the side that comes in contact with the valve. If you are in a pinch you could probably turn the orings around and it may seal that way. good luck...

I know guys that have been in the middle of now where and they turned them around. It works but only for a few months. You can also use #90 O rings from your local plumbing section at a hardware store. I have a set in my fuel bowl that have not leaked in 3 years.

I wish my IH dealer was like yours. My IH dealer does not want to deal with Ford guys.

any hydraulic shop will have the Viton rings that you should use. Anything more than a couple bucks and you got ripped. Check your yellow pages for a hydraulic shop in your area.

A quick bandaid for this would be to put a small piece of hose on the drain and plug it with a bolt and hose clamp. Obviously dont let Dodge or Chevy owners see you do this but it will work for a temporary fix..

It won't hold the pressure of the system for very long. So just keep your eye on it.

One of the old school ways to set the FPR was to clamp a piece of hose on the outlet and put a gauge on the other end. Open the valve and you have the pressure in the system being read. Only it had a habit of popping off between 60-65psi. What a mess it makes. Then I got the notion to put the outlet on the lathe and machine barbs into the outlet nipple. No problems from then on with my pressure gauge popping off. Man was that a long time ago, back when I was tweaking on my '95 PSD.

Early 99 is the same as the late99-03, 1/2"od x 1/4"id x 1/8" thick. I get them from ACE hardware and Orchard Supply Hardware, they are a #90 O ring from the plumbing department. Others have said they can be had from a hydraulic ship, but not from my local Parker store. I have herd tell of a #202 O ring as well. You will have to see what you find in your area using the size.

Yes, I would change them even though they are not leaking now. It is a matter of time, very near time it will leak again.
