fuel separator function question

Ok, so I crawl under truck to open drain valve. This is the 3rd time I have drained it in as many months. When I turned the value to open the drain, the nipple itself rotated with the handle, it seemed to leak a little bit round the housing and drain nipple. I had zip tied a small piece of clear tube to the nipple to aid in hitting drain bucket and the whole thing rotated (valve and nipple together)??? I don't recall the drain nipple itself moving before, is this normal???

that whole yellow lever and nipple are the same part bud, i had to replace mine before. If it leaks there is an O-ring on the inside of the metal housing.

as long as it doesn't leak regularly your fine. what i do is take a used water bottle and hold it over the nipple hold it with your arm horizontal so the little bit of fuel doesn't run down your arm or sleeve
