I have a 15hp Yamaha 2-stroke and it leaks fuel
where the fitting on the end of the hose from the tank connects to the fitting on the engine
. It seems the fitting on the engine
has a little metal rod in the center of it that pushes the ball in the hose fitting to open it when you connect the two. However, the rod can move side to side and sometimes pushes on the gasket
behind the ball in the hose fitting. This cuts the gasket
and allows fuel
to leak out between the two fittings. At least I think this is what the problem is.
Anyone else have this issue and know how to fix it. I have replaced both fittings several times to no avail.
