    ranger 8 fuel leak

    i filled my gas tank and fuel leaked from the top of what must be the fuel pump.i disconnected the hose from a straange-looking block below the carb, and when it drained down the leak stopped. cant get the parts list off thelinconsite,it wont download, and now ill try to get them on the phone for the diagram

    anyone have any experience with this type of problem? with the fuel drained down below that level it seems to work ok.

    No real engine parts detail though. You'll have to check out the engine brand website for that I suspect.

    i got the parts list and it shows the leaking device to be a fuel gage assembly kit. i will go burn some rod and use up some more gas and pull the sucker out to see if it is fixable, before doing that ill ask my lws to see if the part is available and what it costs.. before i try to fix it..must be a bad gasket i guess..

    My bobcat was leaking from the gas guage, it was on the top of the tank. I took it out and cleaned it up, made a small rubber gasket out of an old intertube, put it back together. It has been fine so far. It would only leak when you filled it all the way up then drove the truck.
