Just turn the T part of the handle. Then follow the hose that comes off and ends somewhere in front of the engine.

Not the nut, it's a valve, like a water tap. The "T" part at the top is the part you turn. You'll probably need to use pliers.

Engine running, or at least lift pump running, but make sure you pull up the hose that drops vertically from the valve and put it in a can or bottle of some sort, else you'll just make a stinky mess.

How do you just run the lift pump?

Yes counter-clockwise and if you look in this thread, TD explains the LP procedure.

Thanks for the help guys I did it a few minutes ago and have a few more questions.

Heres the tube, the end thats not on the drain valve doesnt plug into anything in particular does it? Maybe I should of waited till day time to do this to check but I was bored. Do you just let it dangle out of the way of the belts?



Can I just pull it off all together like this and just plug the hose back in when I do the drain procedure? Im thinking of just cutting a small piece of the hose and just plugging the other end and using the long hose when I do the procedure. Can I just leave it like this or as mentioned use a small plug?



Heres what I got when I drained it. It came out really fast so I probably drained more then I should. How does it look? Is this normal?



Also when I pulled the hose off some of the diesel dripped onto the engine. How flamable is diesel? That worried me a little when that happened and wiped off as much as I can. Ill hose off part of the engine tommorow. The engine was cold when I did this and the engine was probably on for 2 minutes so I can do this.

Sorry for all the questions. I'm still new at all this. I appreciate all the help though

Sorry 1 more question, I been reading the faqs and the link provided and I couldnt find how to just run the lift pump only. I did the draining while the truck was idling, I wanna know how to do it with just the lift pump on.

You can take the hose off if you want, mine doesn't have one and yes, I only put one on when I open the T-valve during fuel filter replacement etc.

Fuel on the engine, I wouldn't worry about it from a fire standpoint. Now from a smell standpoint that's another issue. If there was a lot that got on the engine I'd spray some brake parts cleaner on it to rinse it off, and running the LP on a '99 can be accomplished by turning the key to the on position IIRC.
