BTW, for anyone with this model bus, the filter was on the driver's side, inboard of the frame, in front of the muffler.

If it's a clear bowl then the separation between the water and fuel should be obvious. If you're getting nothing but fuel out of the valve then you might have a bad sensor.

Filter is a solid white canister with a large red knob on the bottom for the drain. Whatever I got out of it seemed to do the trick. The bus ran perfect on the trip (1400 miles there and back again). Thanks again to everyone who offered advice.

It's actually quite tempting to find some sort of rubber peacock head and glue it onto a fuel separator on a random bus. Nobody would see it for quite some time, of course, and the guy who did might not get the gag. But if he did, I would imagine his reaction would be priceless. And just knowing that I set such a time-bomb for someone would be quite gratifying...

I used to be a high-school science teacher. Can you tell?
