Drain On Fuel Filter

Has anybody ever had porblems with the drain on the fuel filter that sits right on top the motor leaking. Mine is and i would really like to fix it rather than let my $2.59 diesel run out on the ground.

Here is a wep site to walk you fix the leak. Its real easy to do. I got my new o-rings at Mcmaster carr for $6.00 for a bag of 25 just because its cheap and they are Viton and they hold up better in fuel but you can go and get some at a hardware store if you want a quick fix but they may not be Viton and you will pay more for them and they might not last as long. If you do the size is 1/8 x 1/4 x 1/2.
Good luck
Brian
