6.0 Water drain?

Is there a fuel/water seperator that can be drained on an '05 6.0L?

Sorry, I searched as didn't see anything on the 6.0, but did see stuff for the 6.4.

Looking to do zoodad, fuel pressure spring, ccv, and coolant filter mods. May add water/fuel seperator too if needed.

Anyone?


Shawn

My 03 has one on the frame rail drivers side under front door. Its a fuel filter/water separator assembly. You can Google that phrase for pics. Loosen Allen head brass plug to drain, cant remember size. Drain it each oil change.

^ what he said. Slide underneath near the drivers door and you'll see it on the inside of the frame rail. Be careful when you drain it or you'll get diesel running down your arm, into your armpit, and down your side. I don't mind the smell of the diesel throughout the day, but the lady friend is not a fan.

Been there, done that!

I'm going to installed the thumb valve mod. The allen is a PITA, especially if you're in the woods hunting or something. I drained my neighbors 6.4 the other day, it was a much easier process with a lever/ball valve

Thanks,
Do we know the NPT size of the brass allen plug?
I would just as soon replace the plug when I drain it. Then I could just put a hose on the barb and drain it into a pan instead of down my arm.

Yeah, wear long sleeves when you pull it. You are gonna be showered with diesel especially if it is a 4WD when it hits off of the front drive shaft. Fortunately, I love the smell of diesel....

Here is a link to the thumb valve for the water drain. Also, some have used a carb cleaner to clean the "water in fuel" sensor. They take the little tube that goes into the spray nozzle and bend it just enough to spray at the sensor.
