On the inside side of the driver side framerail, where the HFCM (horizontal fuel conditioning module) is located. To remove, requires a 6mm allen key.

Why isn't it simple like the 7.3's on the bottom of the fuel bowl. Is it better, hold more water, what is it? Or is it just a reason for you to take it to the dealer?

How is that not simple 6mm allen key unscrew plug and drain. After everything comes out put plug back in.

Seems simple enough until your on the side of the road at night with no tools. On the 7.3 it has a swing valve that you turn with your fingers very simply. Just seems odd that they'd change it after it working so well and being so easy.

I'm not saying it's not easy for me but they changed a system that everybody could fix. There are people that can't even put air in a tire. Most every one can turn a knob.

I think they just do it to make people have to come in to the dealer. Yeah I have done it a few times with the delivery trucks. I don't know where it is but I ask my neighbor or his dad and they tell me where. We worked on a lot of different engines and his dad knows everything. Like the back of his hand, probably the 40-50 yrs of experience.
