Johann,  (and group)

I couldn't view your pix........I am on a deathly slow dial-up and it would
literally take me more than an hour to look at them all.  I did find a 1
paragraph blurb in the Bentley and a crappy photo of a water separator and I
think that , that is it, yes.
Well the "cap" basically just falls off. I understand this is ALSO the valve
"handle" too I guess.(?)
Seems to me I am gonna have problems with it.   Wonder if I could use some
teflon tape on the rim of the opening the round cap/handle goes onto, to get
a better seal?  What about the little exit/drain tube.....can I safely cap
this off? With what? Rubber hose like now >?Any suggestions?

WIth the price of diesel @ over a buck a liter I can't afford to have it
running all over the ground. LOL
