1) Check to see if it tight.Front fitting at the bottom of the gas tank is spraying fuel when I move the fitting. It has been changed to stainless steel lines already by the previous owner. Any ideas on the fix?
If the check valve is lose (it happens) fuel will run out of the tank bung, if it's tight no fuel loss.The fitting is tight, that was the first thing I checked. Is gas going to run out of the tank when I remove this fitting? I've read about a check valve in there.
Just so that you will know................ you can get most Orings from a tractor supply house , like J-D . :thumbThe parts from phat performence are scheduled to show up today, I ordered them on sept. 17th. Just be aware that this business is in no hurry to get your order out the door on its way to you, the website said they were in stock when I placed the order. In the meantime I went to autozone and bought a metric o ring kit for $7.00 that had the sizes I needed. No more leaks! Back in the wind!
90 duro Orings are the best material you will likely come across . They will withstand 400* temps and petroleum products .I was concerned about the material the o rings are made of. Buna-n o rings will not hold up to any kind of petroleum product for long. The ones I got at autozone say they are automotive grade, what ever that means so I'm not sure what they are made of. All o rings are not created equal, that is why you see such a price difference. If the ones I used are in fact made of Buna-n rubber they swell up and distort in a short period of time. Now that I have the kit which did finally come yesterday, I can change them to the correct material that should hold up to gasoline when I have the opertunity.
Ask your dealership to check around. They can look for it in inventory at other dealerships.Does anyone know where to purchase a 61408-95A Check Valve in? I botched mine during a fuel tank repair. Harley has obsoleted the part and I have yet to find one remaining in anyone's stock nor an aftermarket product.
