450 Rancher leaking gas when filling
« on: July 08, 2014, 07:39:21 pm »
Hello,

This is a fairly new saw with only about a few hours of run time on it. Today after using for about an hour, I went to refill tank and it started leaking from the other side as I was pouring in. After some rearching it is suggested that it might be a tank vent or bad fuel line. I really do not want to start taking apart until I know for sure what I am doing. The manual really does not have a good diagram of how it is put together and I do not want to learn the hard way.
First, any other suggestions as to what might be causing the leak?
Second, anyone have steps/diagrams to help when (if) I take it apart?

Thanks
Jim

I think the vent comes out on the right side of the tank. Something is loose and leaking there?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
