fuel leak 02 excursion 7.3

Hi Guys, I seem to be getting a fuel leak on my 7.3 I traced it to the area of the fuel drain. Its not the short hose that goes to the metal line, it looks like the black drain assy. I see 2 screws holding it to the filter housing i was wondering if that part is available of do I replace the whole heater filter assy? any thoughts, Thanks Don

If you're in a pinch and you don't have time to wait for the replacement o-rings...If they're not too flat and brittle, you may be able to just flip the original o-rings around in the drain valve assembly. That option worked for me and lasted for about two years on my '99 Superduty before it started weeping again.

But like fedeavakian mentioned, the best thing is to just re-seal the valve assy. with new o-rings.

U can also temporarily get by with using a piece of rubber fuel hose.
