fuel bowl - particularly the drain at the back.

There are two o-rings - #202, available at www.mcmaster.com in Viton for dirt cheap.

20-30 minute job.

That's where I would start.

Update to an old thread

The Viton o-rings and Dorman 904-202 Water Separator (drain valve) are available on Amazon now for good price.



I used a SnapOn ¼" air ratchet with the T20 Torx on the 4 valve screws to save some time and carpel tunnel syndrome..
