Draining Water Separator: Official COMPLETE instructions, please!
So, I HATE having to post threads because, eventually someone says, "If you'd done a proper search..." Or, "Please try the search before starting a new thread..." etc. This IS the simplest topic ever, I would think, but after multiple searches via google and expressly on this page, utilizing a NUMBER of varying word usages, I cannot find a simple set of instructions on how one should REALLY drain the water separator. I used all kinds of variations using words like these, "water, separator, drain, instructions" and got a lot of replies and threads that talk about changing the filter, or replacing the filter, or leaking at the filter, but I bought this truck (2 w/this engine) not too long ago, have NOT drained either water separator yet, and would like to REALLY know how to do so. So, can anyone point me to a thread that clarifies this? The truck I am wanting to do right now is a 1989 F350, 7.3 IDI, AT. The other is a 1986 S1654 International retired U-haul truck I bought. As I said, if the process is going to be different for the 2 trucks, the more urgent one is the 1989 F350. Thanks for any help!
