Exclamation 2001 7.3 F-250, Leaking fuel, already replaced water drain valve

My 2001 7.3 is leaking diesel around the fuel filter housing, I replaced the water drain valve today, still leaking the same. Any suggestions?

i would buy the o-rings kit from dieselorings and reseal the whole fuel bowl. if you dont want the kit you can get the individual o-rings.

if your in a pinch you can use a cut piece of rubber hose instead of the vibra lock orings it requires.

Either buy the ford parts for the fuel line o rings. Or go to dieselorings . Com to order them.

Thanks for the input guys. After having a nights rest and daylight, I discovered the fuel filter cap is busted, seems like a common problem as well.
