if you are in a pich and cant get parts, A piece of rubber inner tube put accross where the 2 orings go then reinstall the bolts will work for a temp fix. I know this cause someone rigged my truck this way.
Bob at Replacement O-rings for Ford Diesel Engines is a great guy and very helpful. He ships real fast.

I just did this last weekend. I too had the same leak. It seem that the plastic water separator drain assembly has a tendency to go bad and leak. Ford sells a kit, it cost me 53 dollars. It has a new drain assembly and O rings. Not to hard of a fix but if you have some fat fingers it's going to get tight.

5 bucks for the 3 O-rings, I would just buy them if the drain is not cracked.
