Sounds like the valve wore out, the filter inside would'nt cause a leak. I chased a fuel leak down recently that ended up being a hole worn in the fuel line underneath the bowl

Either you didn't close the drain valve all the way or the o-rings are leaking. Here is a link to for replacement parts.
Replacement O-rings for Ford Diesel Engines

You will see a link for installation instructions at the bottom of that page. It's a pretty easy fix.

What you need is simply two (2) #202 O-rings, and a Torx bit set to remove the four screws on the drain valve assembly. You *may* want an angled pick to break the seal around the drain hose as they tend to stick onto the metal tube over the years. Just run the pick around the inside to break the seal.

You should use VITON material O-rings if you can get them, but in a pinch you can put rubber O-rings in temporarily until you can order some viton one's online. I think I paid $5 for 25? It was some years ago.

Cheap fix, simple to do, but frustrating if your hands are bigger than a chipmunk's.

Get the blue ones from Guzz.

The best there is, and likely the very last time you'll ever do that job.

There is actually a third o-ring on the valve stem itself that can leak and should be replaced when you replace the two outer seals. Guzzle's/RiffRaff's kit has you covered.

I just did this fix, and beware that you need a small ratchet and the correct Torx bit - you cannot use a Torx screwdriver (of the sort used for GM headlight trim). It took a bit longer than I expected, due to the access issues, but the kit and instructions (from dieselorings) were outstanding.

If your o-rings are leaking at the drain valve, then it is time to replace all of your fuel bowl o-rings. You can over haul your fuel bowl in a couple of hours with the kit from Guzzle and his step by step instructions.
