Gas cap float

Recommended Posts

MPH

While putting the tank back in the 3314 after tightening the throttle lever nut because it would no longer hold RPM I had the thought to check the cap on the "new" 716 for condition. Still had the float on it, seems to work when I moved it up and down but after replacing the floatless one on the 3314 it dosn't function with 1/2 tank of gas. Best I figure the cork is too soaked to float. Any ideas on a fix?

:D:D Marty..I have issues with the cork floats and a brand new plastic one from the dealer. Since they all discolor over time I have resigned myself to just filling tank before every use and ignoring the gauge....Dave
