Here you go
Before you change anything, turn on your key to pressurize the system. Locate the small, yellow-handled fuel filter water drain valve on the firewall side of the fuel filter. Exercise this valve a half dozen times. Maybe you'll get lucky and blow out the cause of the leak. Otherwise:
1. A #20 Torx driver socket for 1/4 inch drive.
2. A 1/4 inch ratchet
3. From Home Depot's plumbing department, two #90 Danco o-rings. If you don't have a H-D local to you, they're 1/2" od, 1/4" id, 1/8" material, available from most hardware stores.
Optional: Proper size socket and ratchet for removing the "Powerstroke" plastic cover from the top-front of your engine.
For ease, remove the "Powerstroke" cover.
Locate that yellow valve handle at the side closest to the firewall. This is the drain valve. Remember how the pieces are oriented for later re-assembly. Better yet, take a digital picture. There are four #20 Torx screws holding the valve to the filter body. Using the driver socket and ratchet, remove the four screws. Using a toothpick, pry the two little yellow o-rings out of where they fit. Replace them with the two you bought. Lube the threads on the four screws. Re-assemble and check for leaks. Replace the Powerstroke cover.
