Fuel bowl hole? Cant see what the hole is from

Alright so we are facing the truck. Take off the fuel filter in the bowl. Bottom of the bowl on tjr bottom left I see a hole that someone expoxy something in it. So I pull at the glue and found a perfectly machined hole. It's not the fuel bowl heater. I had to throw expoxy back into it to seal it. Fuel bowl hole?

" It's not the fuel bowl heater."

Your correct the heater has been removed -- that is the hole for the wire connector

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Was the epoxy the brown stuff in the first picture? That looks like something with the fuel bowl drain valve. Check out this link from Diesel O-Rings: https://www.dieselorings.com/docs/OB...owlRebuild.pdf

Cheers!

Fuel bowl heater was disconnected and unplugged before picture was taken.

The brown stuff is the glue that was in there. I thought it was the drain but the drain works when I turn the valve to drain it.
