Broke the water separator lever in the open position

Yes, it happened. Can't get it to close even after try to turn the drain tube. Don't leak when running but steady drip as soon as I shut it off. Broke the tube trying to turn it. Ideas?

Go get the kit for the low pressure pump housing ($40 at Ford) and repair it. It comes with new valve, gasket, etc.). Same sort of issue here:

Water seperator drain valve

Do I need a disconnect tool to remove fuel lines toward motor?

Or, upgrade time to a Air Dog? I hate the factory filter location and BS that goes with it.

I took my hfcm cover off and cleaned the gunk out because it wasn't draining without removing the fuel lines and without removing it from the frame. There's enoug play to get in there and scoop it out. Get the hfcm gasket to replace it if the new lever doesnt come with one and you'll be good to go

If I remember correctly, the lines have quick disconnects on them. I can't remember because I have the line disconnect too so I may have used it.

I'd skip on the AD unless you have cash burning a hole in your pocket and have already upgraded a few other things since I think the OEM fuel system works fine with a stock truck.

I dont think anyone gets the AD because the stock fuel system doesnt work well. It makes filter changes easier and you get better filtration/water seperation.

Got it fixed. Just replaced the valve. For the gasket kit too for next time. Gonna try to change my own filters. If tank wasn't full would have done it at same time. Thanks for everyone's help.

Whether the tank is full or not really doesn't matter. You just don't want it full up the filler neck.

It shouldn't continue to dump fuel on you the entire time you swap filters.
