Fuel filter change, broken water seperator lever?
So, from the looks of the fuel filter I took out when doing my change yesterday I am guessing the previous owner never had this done, 56K on the clock. It looked like it had been running oil through the main filter on the frame rail, and even the secondary was pretty dirty.
Anyways, when I went to drain the water seperator the flip lever broke off, also another reason I am guessing they never used this and never changed the filter.
My question is, can I just pull the cover off on my next change by removing the torx screws and slid a new lever on? Or am I the first to have this happen on here.
I never really used the drain on my 6.0 and never had any issues and hadn't in the 3K I had put on my 2010, but wanted to get opinions.
Definitely glad I replaced the filters and just wish I had it the day I got it.
Also, I would recommend spraying some kinda lube on that lever every few months or so and moving it to make sure it still works.
