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 are the steps to removing gas tank from Husqvarna 48 riding lawn mower?

Before you do that check the breather hole in the gas tank cap - that's the most common problem. Leaking is probably a faulty pipe, especially if you've disconnected them. Don't rely on push fit only - use hose clips.

Husqvarna 150 BT won't start? seems like its not getting fuel.

The blower will need to be checked to see what is wrong. Start with compression, should be 125-145 lbs/in Check spark with a spark tester and make sure to use resistor plug. Next, make sure the fuel lines are in good condition and not cracked or leaking. If the unit has set with fuel in the unit, chances are the carburetor is clogged and the fuel lines are damaged.

I filled my 340 husqvarna chainsaw for the first time this year and it leaked gas from someshere opposite the fuel fill tank( maybe near the fuel line). It then quit leaking and just will not start. Maybe...

Opposite the fuel fill is the tank breather, and the return to tank hose if the machine has a primer, the back to tank hose fits on to an orange connection in the tank, it may have slipped off, next to it is the breather the early breather was two white pellets pressed into the tank, these will need to be removed and replaced if this is where the leak is from, the later breather is a white round assembly with a connection on the top, nothing fits to this conection, the breather can be pulled and and replaced if required.

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.
