I have dumped about five gallons of gas on my lawn.  I couldn't figure out why it was running through gas, but there was a large hole in the fuel line.  While taking off the fuel line, I accidentally pulled the twist valve out of the fuel tank.  The rubber grommet that is around the valve has a tear.  What is the best way to get a new fuel line and rubber grommet?  Thank you!

Check the vendor section   -  Bob's Wheel Horse Brake Linings and More - he has the parts that you need...:)

Ok.  I am pretty ignorant.  An auto parts store doesn't carry this type of stuff?  I like to support members, but it would be nice to get it running tomorrow if possible.

Edit:  I just paid Bob!

I have found the grommets at certain hardware stores.

tractor supply carries them if you have one around you and I imagine Napa would but have never bought them at Napa.

Your local lawn mower/small engine shop will have them in stock.  Just take in your old one to show what you need.

Still did not answer the question about your stock ownership or do you get a kick back on each referral :wacko:

If I had stock or kickbacks I'd still be there. :) I just remember everything we carried and how to get quick answers for people looking for items. I used to have hundreds of account#'s , phone #'s and part #'s in my head. Still have a lot of filter #'s in my head but most everything else is gone as you well know by dealing with me. :)

Get mine on ebay (Sorry)! Bought many in my day. Hate this ethanol gas! Chews thru rubber like crazy, even with StayBol in it.
