fuel water separator

710 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bigfish95971
I discovered (while on a long road trip) that fuel is leaking out of what appears to be the fuel water separator drain handle. Is this repairable? Possibly a seal or o-ring in the assy? Has anyone seen this in the past?

Thanks everyone.

You can take it off and replace any o-rings in it. One that usually goes out and leaks is the one where the two wires for the fuel heater go in it. Take it off and apart from the bottom and replace with the right sized std o-ring. Might be 5/8 id 3/4 od with 1/16 round stock. It will look hard and square when you take it out but it was round new
