FUEL FILTER QUESTION?

I bought my truck used & when I went to change my fuel filter for the first time, I noticed that the plug you unscrew with an allen wrench to drain the water out, was stripped. I have just been changing my filter & bypassing that part of the procedure, hoping that any water in there would come out with the fuel. My question is, is this ok, or should I try and get it out and replace it? And if it needs to be replaced, any suggestions on how to get it out & where can I get one? THANKS!

There is a new style plug that replaces the worthless allen head POS you're referring to. You can try an eze out or taking a 6mm allen wrench and jb welding it in. I don't have the part# but several vendors sell the new style replacement plug. That part is a separate chamber and I don't think it will drain by removing the fuel filter.

use a dremmel, cut a straight slot in it to allow a large screwdriver to fit it.

Sears makes a set of screw removal bits that are nothing short of magic. They are specially cut bits to remove most worn out or messed up screws. I bought the set for about $20 and twice they have saved my bacon. I haven't used them for this problem but keep it in mind. Also, one trick I've used is to tap a one size larger 7mm hex bit into the worn 6mm hole. A few good hits and you should have enough meat on it to turn the screw.
