Question about 2008 Husqvarna TE 450
Pulled off the fuel pump on my TE 450 08 after it would not start. found that where the hose hooks onto the fuel pump it had broken off the nipple. husky put it thru as a warranty claim (better cause its $1300 for a new one). my question is has anyone had this problem, husky said it was due to vibration. after 10 months use and a 1000 km's i hope it will not be a reaccuring problem.
Get some proof in writing from the retailer noting the issue for future ref.
