New Owner with Questions

Greetings all.......

I purchased a 2000 Limited Excursion this past Friday......108k miles 7.3.

I have a few questions....the first....I read about draining the water from the fuel separator bowl.....after searching for the valve, I found it!! Does the drain tube need a rubber hose on it to extend it beyond the engine? If so, do you know what diameter the metal tube is?

My hubs have lost the wording on them....How do I know if they are locked? I've attached a photo of the passengers wheel with the dimple. Is it locked or unlocked?

you could probably put hose on it, and save it or whatever. But when i drain mine, i just open it and let it dump out... you dont need it per say.

And the stock hubs suck FWIW. ditch those for some warns and dont look back. I do not know if those are locked or not though, sorry.

Counterclockwise to unlock hubs.
As stated above , you can attach a drain hose if you like , the EPA would probably appreciate it and a catch bottle when you drain. As it sits now it will get on the front axle and probably a few other pieces , doesn't hurt anything as it sits though.
