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.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
