Fuel Leak I have replaced the fuel cap on my Husqvarna 145 BT Power blower and i continues to leak. I recently noticed that the breather inside the tank is missing. Would this cause the leak or do I need to replace the entire fuel assembly?

Broke small black connector between fuel line to side of carburetor. Flat bottomed funnel shape fits in to side of carb. Has filter inside. I believe it feeds the primer.

That is a fuel tank vent kit. Most models have a vent in the fuel cap but that model uses a separate line with a Duck bill vent (usually a green rubber inside that piece in picture). Part number for that is 574859301 . Your blower should run ok with out it but could leak fuel. If you are going to order any parts for your blower do so using Model # PPBP30 Your parts will be cheaper. That particular model has exchanged hands between MTD/Mcculloch/Bolens and Husqvarna/Poulan over the years. The parts are cheaper when you use the Husqvarna/Poulan model # PPBP30. Only noticeable difference will be a yellow starter housing if you buy a starter assembly.

What is a fuel vent on a pb-413t. Can get plugged ?

Hi, the fuel vent is built into the fuel cap. You cannot plug it as the blower will not continue to run as it uses fuel. If plugged it can damage the blower. I'm assuming the cap is leaking and the only way to fix it is to replace the cap with a new one. Regards Phil.

On my homelite leaf blower, gas is leaking out at the cap when i hold the blower pointing down...there appears to be a breather hole in the middle of the cap where the leak is occuring...should that hole...

No, the hole shold be open. There is a check valve in the cap which, when working properly, allows the tank to vent (lets air in so fuel will flow to the carburetor) but prevents fuel from pouring out. I'd first give the cap a good cleaning to see if that stops the leak. If not, you'll need a replacement.

More info, let me know.

My 130bt blower stops reving after several minuets. Will start but not rev after running fine for 5-7 minuets?

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The next time it does this... loosen the gas cap a lot momentarily for about 10 seconds then tghten it and attempt a restart. If if starts right away again the gas cap is bad. It is supposed to breathe via a rubber seal in the cap. There are 5 parts in the cap. If it can not breathe the gas tank goes into a vacuum as fuel drains and you will experience fuel starvation.

Also check inside the fuel tank for debris.

130BT (I used the 2001 - 2007) There is also a 2008-2010 choice
and then click on Fuel tank a.s.s.y

I suspect the problem is either going to the the fuel cap or the fuel filter.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Fuel leak after I shut off the blower and set it down.

Well, if gas is running through your engine and out the muffler, there's a lot of fuel inside the crankcase and I doubt that you would be able to start it. My thought is that there is a cracked fuel line or fuel tank, with emphasis on the fuel line. You may want to take some housing parts off to see if you can see a drop of fuel hanging on the fuel line where it may be dripping and running over to the muffler area.

Check the fuel tank for any vent lines or ports. Make sure they are all clear of dust and dirt.
